The granitic/gneissic inselbergs of coastal Brazil are known for their high levels of endemism and taxonomic diversity. They are sometimes interpreted as dry islands within the Atlantic rainforest, supporting a highly specialized vegetation that includes many ferns and lycophytes. Here you can see Anemia retroflexa, a beautiful endemic species of southeastern Brazil that thrives in this particular environment.
