Please help to id this Pteridophyte, found abundant over marshy rocks in a moist deciduous forest area. Could this be a species of Selaginella?
Place: Mudumalai wls, Nilgiris, TN
Date: 05 May 2010


I think s rupestris the resurrection plant


Also its hard for me to find any Rhizophore here.


To me it seems to be Selaginella kraussiana


The Plant in the attached photo is Selaginella kraussiana and not S rupestris. I am attaching a slide showing the difference between the morphology of this two species of Selaginella.
