Pellaea andromedifolia (Kaulf.) Fée
Habit: Rhizome long-creeping, branched, > 20 cm, 0.5 cm wide; scales 2--3 mm, tan to orange-brown, mid-stripe dark or not. Leaf: +- unclustered, 20--60(80) cm, 10--20(30) cm wide, green to +- purple; stipe < +- 3 mm wide, +- light brown; blade (2--4)3-pinnate, elongate-triangular; segments generally 6--15 mm, 3--10 mm wide, tip +- rounded to obtuse, notched or not. Sporangia: 32- or 64-spored. Chromosomes: 2n=58, n=2n=87,116.
Ecology: Generally rocky or dry areas; Elevation: 30--1800 m. Bioregional Distribution: NCoR, CaRF, SN, CW, SW; Distribution Outside California: Baja California. Note: Apogamous or generally sexual. California plants diploid (for which the name Pellaea andromedifolia var. rubens D.C. Eaton has been published), triploid, or tetraploid; Pellaea andromedifolia var. pubescens D.C. Eaton (Baker instead might be correct) has been published for hairy plants near coast in southern California, ChI; further study needed to determine whether or not taxonomic recognition of either entity is warranted.
