Another unknown fern - similar size to nearby Male Ferns
Lat/Lng: 51.6319, 0.0188
OS grid ref: TQ398944
No interactions present.
There's not enough visible for me to make an identification.
Sori are often helpful in identifying ferns - that's how I knew I'd found Oreopteris limbosperma rather than an odd Dryopteris.
I'd guess that this is a male fern with more dissected pinnules than usual, but in the field I would have checked the overall shape of the frond, and the colour of the petiole scales.
thanks for the tips. Ian
