Philpatrick Posted July 9, 2022 Report Share Posted July 9, 2022 Lecanopteris mirabilis does not shed spores like a typical fern. I had to take a closer look. The spores are ejected as a wooly cluster. L. mirabilis spore cluster. 20220708_223605~3.mp4 The individual spores are encased in a thin shell. There is a long filament on each shell. Here is an isolated set of spores with one spore case opened. 20220709_012426~2.mp4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
