Following the publication of this article [1], the authors reported that the Fig. 2 described in the article had a mistake that two grey blocks in S. moellendorffii was not placed as background color, and in the Fig. 2 legend, chlL-chlN was wrongly written into chlL-chlL. They have therefore provided the following alternative Fig. 2 in this Correction article in order to show the accurate information.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Linear maps of plastomes between S. vardei and other lycophytes showing the rearrangements. Upper arrow indicates genes transcribed in forward direction; lower arrow indicates genes transcribed in reverse direction. The red ycf2 indicates the translocation from LSC to SSC and the purple chlL-chlN indicates the inversion in I. flaccida
