Description

I was so sure of this, but apparently the underside is meant to tomentose and not scaly, and this one was definitely scaly. So does that make it another frond of C. covillei, just not curled up?

https://www.flickr.com/photos/suecarnahan/13426654223/ is M. wootonii, but it looks like, yes, the "beady" Myriopteris can uncurl and produce an appearance like this.
