Sumario:Diversity of ferns and lycophytes from Calilegua National Park, Jujuy Province Argentina. The biogeographic province of the “Yungas” is considered by the UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. In this zone, Calilegua National Park is one of the “cores” of the Yungas, where ferns and lycophytes grow as epiphytic, terrestrial or saxicoulous in different environments. The aim of this study is to make known the ferns and lycophytes that inhabit in Calilegua National Park, in order to provide information on Yungas biodiversity. For this purpose, 5 field trips were performed during december-May 2007-2011. Voucher specimens were deposited in the following herbaria: JUA, LP and RCV. Other herbaria and specific bibliography were also consulted. According to this study 103 taxa (species and varieties) of ferns and lycophytes inhabit in Calilegua National Park, grouped in 18 families and 43 genera. Six species are first recorded for the Province of Jujuy. Nomenclatural updates and keys for taxa identification are also given
