Description

Amazing. I was looking back through my photos for things I'd never submitted and came across this from dolomite cliffs in Marquette County. I had very little idea what I was doing 5 years ago so I'm glad I saw fit to photograph this random fern. ID is a little tentative due to picture quality but I feel pretty good about it. This would make this site the only place with all four of Michigan's Woodsia species!

I wondered if the last two photos might be Cystopteris, but they were taken within 6 seconds of the first - and a little bit of detective work (comparing dead pinnules) shows that the fern in the first pic is the frond in the center closest to my hand in the second pic. Most Cystopteris are a little more beat up by the end of August, at least on relatively exposed south-facing cliffs like this one.

Some other ID features: Looks like a Cystopteris but has conspicuous glandular hairs on the rachis and a rather toothier look. Far larger than typical Woodsia oregana, or any other Woodsia for that matter, and much more glandular than the W. oregana at this site. Plus, the first picture shows wide scales near the base and what appear to be small multicellular scales on the rachis about 2/3 up the blade. Hairs shorter and whiter than Woodsia ilvensis; it's hard to tell but it seems to also lack the cluster of snapped-off stalks at the base and instead has old dead fronds hanging around.

Sporophore consistently had compound branching and ranged from 1-3" tall; pale green tropophore was stalked and stem below point of attachment on trophophore stalk was short (~1cm). Pinnae varied from 1 pair + terminal lobe to 4 pair + terminal lobe. Botrychium simplex collected here in 1991 by Emmet Judziewicz. I've added multiple photos to show variation in individuals.

Unknown from Illinois, but the habitat (exposed limestone cliff edge) matches where it occurs in Tennessee. Further investigation to commence when it's actively growing. The awns are widely spaced, but the awns not as long as Elymus hystrix, and most awns are somewhat bent.

This could just be Elymus histrix though, so I'll definitely have to double check it in June.
