Brief Summary

Read full entry


This scale-covered cloakfern, like its close relative N. aschenborniana, is most likely to be confused with species of Cheilanthes rather than with other Notholaena species. Underneath the scales, however, is the layer of farina characteristic of all species of core Notholaena. It is one of the few species of core Notholaena that make it across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, and extends into Guatemala (Mickel & Smith 2004).
