This unidentified fern was submitted by Nadhanielle Somonsson who has it in cultivation from plants collected in the Aiyura Valley of the Eastern Highlands at 1500 m. It has since been identified as Goniophlebium subauriculatum by Bernard Sule of LAE herbarium. Thanks Bernard!

I am particularly interested in macroevolutionary patterns and characters that diagnose large clades of ferns and lycophytes. My field work is centered in Mexico, Colombia, and Papua New Guinea. I am based in the Pringle Herbarium (VT) at the University of Vermont. If you have any ferns that you want identified, please send them to me!

A new special friend! I went to splash my face in the river, looked over, and met this lovely species (Bolbitis appendiculata). I'm still in awe 💚 #fernfriday4
