Description

These ferns (family Polypodiaceae) were growing out of a shaded stream side cliff in Sobranes Canyon (Garrapata S.P.) along the upper Big Sur Coast.

This fern is believed to have originated through hybridization between P. californicum and P. glycyrrhiza. When crossed with other P. calirhiza, the offspring are fertile, but when backcrossed with their one of their parental species, the offspring are sterile.
