Digging deep into the archives of ferns collected over the last five years, Amauropelta cornuta was a highlight. Alejandra Vasco and I found this species in a cloud forest adjacent to the military base in Pueblo Rica, Risaralda.With its sub-scandent long creeping stem and 1-pinnate lamina, it was very un-Amauropelta-like in my experience at that time. I now understand that there are other scandent Amauropelta in the northern Andes that may be related.
