Lecanopteris mirabilis spore cluster

Recommended Posts

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.


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.
