Ardvreck Beagles and Pharaoh Hounds
Hymenophyllum tunbrigense (L.) Sm. Tunbridge Filmy- Fern from Milkingstead Wood, Eskdale, Cumbria [SD1517899609].
Taken on a very wet and soggy 18th July 2011 by N. Blackstock.
Note the overlapping, mat like fronds, The mid-vein not fully extending to the pinnae margin and the toothed indusia.
The latter easily separates this from Wilsonís filmy-fern, which is also found in Milkingstead Wood.
