Three worksheets include morphometric data of silica bodies from the three Selaginella species used in this study. Morphometric data include the base diameter (dbase), height and aspect ratio (rasp) obtained from each silica body. Individuals sampled for measurement were also recorded, with an abbreviated population name following a collection number. In the datasheet for S. delicatula, both semithin and freehand sections were used. The methodology is recorded in the last column.
