Green fern, native and endemic to California.
Daley Ranch trailhead
Possibly C. cooperae
I saw ashen ferns in hills in Riverside county...I think, the fern is this genus only..
Thank you for the ID and information Craig! I really like finding native plants on my hikes, especially if they're endemic :)
Thanks for these Cindy, I love this genus! They're often poikilohydric, like the resurrection fern, capable of withstanding almost total desiccation! Apparently there are ten species endemic to California and I don't know how many others that are native but found elsewhere.
