A fern with it's spore stalk separate from the leaf.

Craig, I'm new to the eastern US, so I am not the most knowledgeable about the fern flora here either. Maybe someone who knows the ferns of the northeast can weigh in and help us out?
Perhaps I was a little hasty and did wonder about the lack of colour in the waning sterile frond. I'm sure your knowledge of US ferns is deeper than mine Kristal.
This is probably a Botrychium sp., but I don't know which one. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Botrychium)
