Bristle ferns (family Hymenophyllaceae) are widespread, often quite small ferns that typically grow in damp, shady areas, such as on forest floors. They range from the subantarctic shrublands and grasslands of Tristan da Cunha, to the tropical rainforests of Australia and Asia, to the temperate forests of Europe and North America.

These plants get their common name from the tiny bristles that protrude from the ends of their leaves.
