What

Alpine Lady-Fern Athyrium distentifolium

Description

This fern grows in montane to subalpine zone, here at flanks of Erzberg it covers large patches, growing densely to big individuals.
It shows that there is constantly enough humidity in the soil.
Hoppe's epithet "alpestre" seems to be the oldest for this species, thus should have priority over "distentifolium".
