Dear Taxacomers,

During the preparation of a teaching session I came across the name
Lignophytes (progymnosperms + seed plants).
However no description nor characterisation nor synapomorphies were
accompanying that name.
I am interested in tracing back the origin of the name
- published by who ?  where ?
- in particular the "ligno" is something that is vexing me.
Your help in this matter is highly appreciated.

Best regards,
