Description

Observed hugging the damp rocks in a tiny "grotto" formed by a seep entering a culvert above the trail, 0.8 miles from the trailhead, descending switchbacks from the bench to the river bottom. Broad, flat leaves with distinctive markings. Deserves a closer look. Because Pojar calls it snake liverwort rather than great scented liverwort, I didn't know to smell the leaves, which "release a pleasant odour when crushed." (Pojar) Plants surrounding the grotto included goatsbeard/Aruncus dioicus, maidenhair fern/Adiatum pedatum, vine maple/Acer circinatum.
