The same individual as imaged by Hermann and posted at flickr in November 2010, chosen here as photo representing holly ferns, Polystichum.
P. lonchitis is type species for the genus.

This big wasp was a little unhappy about the photo session - and engaged in some interspecies communication. Fortunately it was bluffing, and I didn't get stung.
The lousy photos may not give the best impression of the blue and lilic colour, a very pretty flowering plant.

Some robust example with longest fronds up to ca. 50 cm.
Northern holly fern is common there, growing abundandly.
Crappy iPhone photos, unfortunately.
Dead on the side of Interstate 40, east of Seligman.
There is a lot of this wood / buckler fern, this was besides the "male" one so it got it's chance to be shown.

Sarcophaga sp. ♂
I was not sure at first impression if this could be D. villarii, since it's somewhat yellow-green leaves, but do not see conspicuous glands.
Male fern is quite common here.
Growing here on lime as well as in areas with acidic substrate, yet there should be enough water in the ground.
