A sporophyll is a leaf that bears sporangia. Both microphylls and megaphylls can be sporophylls. In heterosporous plants, sporophylls (whether they are microphylls or megaphylls) bear either megasporangia (and thus are called megasporophylls), or microsporangia (microsporophylls). The overlap of the prefixes and roots makes these terms a particularly confusing subset of botanical nomenclature. (Source: Wikipedia)
