Description: A light green fern with thin fronds about 2 inches wide and 1.5 feet long. It has two morphologies, the main fronds which every leaflet is attached to the frond, but not each other like in licorice fern, and another single stemmed frond that looks different from the others in that it has far less leaflets and none of the leaflets touch at all.

Habitat: Growing in moist loamy soil with a thick layer of duff in full shade in the under story of a Douglas-fir dominant forest. Growing among maidenhair fern and sword fern.

Weather: Drizzly, 60F, overcast and wet.
