palmate fern, black stems. adiantum means "not-wetting" cuz water beads off the fronds
Pinnately compound with 9-19 toothed leaflets. Leaves arranged in a whorl.
White central cord with very few branches and numerous from .2-8 cm , hanging from an Acer macrophyllum in strands varying from 4-6 feet in length.
Bracken fern found at the staircase rapids in the Olympic national park. This fern is dormant in the winter which is why it is discolored.
Plants large, upright to ascending, coarse, up to 20 cm long, with irregular, widely spaced, once-pinnate branching; stems and branches without small, green filaments (paraphyllia); uppermost portion often curved to 1 side. Leaves are 3.5-5.0 mm long, egg-shaped with long, slender tips, spreading, somewhat pleated leaves; midribes strong, double; cells elongate and irregularly thickened throughout. Infrequent sporophytes, growing from the side of the stem; stalks long; capsules inclined, curved, smooth.
A large, loosely appressed leaf lichen; lobes broad, 10-25 mm wide; upper surface hairless, olive-green to pale or dark buish-grey, lacking cephalodia, often bearing brownish, tooth-like fruiting bodies (apothecia) on raised lobes along the lobe margins; lower surface whitish, cottony, bearing low, broad, brownish or blackish veins and long, slender holdfasts (rhizines).

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.
Description: A lovely fern, with palmate fronds and thin, black stems and primary veins. Leaflets are oblong and have an interesting margin. It starts entire on one side, but the then becomes crenate on the other side, giving them the appearance of a cartoon wing. Each leaflet has short petioles that lift them from the main stem.
Habitat: Living on moist, loamy soil a with thick duff layer, in full shade under the canopy of a primarily Douglas-fir forest.
Weather: Drizzly, 60F, overcast sky and wet.
Found on rotting wood in an old growth forest. I'm really unsure of this ID.
