What

Hen and Chickens Fern (Asplenium gracillimum)

Description

4-5 plants seen with numerous bulbils (15-20/frond). Fronds of these plants appeared fairly linear in outline, but I could not determine any obvious stipe wing & scales generally had longer tapering tips.
Leon says A.bulbiferum yet to be found in Canterbury, so I assume it is A.gracillimum. Plants on damp, heavily shaded banks at bottom of deeply incised stream bed near start of The Fern Walk, Peel Forest.
