Maidenhair spleenwort

Asplenium trichomanes

Description:

A dainty fern, with an interesting growth habitus, whose tips are more narrow than the base.

Habitat:

The spleenwort colonized entire walls of wet shale just across from a waterfall in Watkins Glen State Park.

Notes:

I was amazed to learn that there are more than a dozen subspecies of Asplenium trichomanes that may be distinguished by the rocky substrate they grow from and the cytotype.
