Bingen, Klickitat County, Washington, USA (Google, OSM)

Description

There are 4 mysterious specimen of shield fern, Polystichum sp., obviousely falsly identified as P. andersonii preserved at:

Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris (France)
Collection : Vascular plants (P), Specimen P01493097 to P01493100

The leaves are very similar to European P. aculeatum, so i suspected for a while, the collector W.N. Suksdorf (born in Germany) might have introduced it to Washington, US.

P01493099 and ....100, referring to this report are labelled: Washington's Flora. Klickitat County. Aspidium aculeatum Sw. fa. robustum Underw., Falcon Valley, W.N. Suksdorf VIII 08.

http://coldb.mnhn.fr/catalognumber/mnhn/p/p01493097
http://coldb.mnhn.fr/catalognumber/mnhn/p/p01493098

Unfortunately the collection's location is given very unprecisely, it could as well be identic with the sample of the year before (....97 + ....98).
Suksdorf's self-created term "Falcon Valley" has revealed to be situated in the Camas Prairie - Conboy Lake area.

This specimen could be big grown P. californicum with nearby fully bipinnate fronds, or some luxurating hybrid, i guess rather with P. braunii than andersonii.

It deviates from typical P. californicum in clearly shortened lowest pinnae, seeming more obtuse in some cases.
