Original Format: Digital
Orientation: Portrait
Shot: Four fronds ex situ. Photographer's note: "Biscayne spleenwort is a very rare hybrid between Asplenium dentatum and Asplenium verecundum. It is endemic to Florida. It is currently know from maybe four sites in Dade County. Hybrid Aspleniums are usually sterile and only occasionally encountered in association with both parents. We recently visited the healthiest known population of the fern. Based on the number of plants, both large and small young sporophytes, there appears to be some sort of reproduction. It just seems too common at the site to be an incidental hybrid. Both parents are present at the site but we only found two small plants of A. verecundum. Collected January A flowering plant."
