Description

I'm calling it C. covillei since the fronds are *mostly* glabrous and there's a pre-existing record of that species in Sunol, but I still don't see how one really draws a line between this and C. intertexta based on morphology. Actually looking at Jepson now and it refers to characters of the rhizome scales. Will have to check that next time.
