Lower Plants of Chakrata: Asplenium ceterach from Chakrata Area:

Asplenium ceterach from Chakrata Area
pls validate

Oh Wow What exactly is this ? and what does lower plants mean?


Fern (Pteridophyte)


It looked like fern but I have never seen such a sori(I hope I am correct) before. always seen them them as dots


The orientation and placement of Sori form the typical character for ferns.


…, to me the live specimen cant be better than the photograph. Best display of charactrstic features of a fern through photography.


This is not A. ceterach


Asplenium Dalhousieae


we’ve had this one before. Could we finally lay this to rest – it is absolutely 100% typical Asplenium dalhousieae and not A. ceterach [which is densely covered in pale scales all over the lower surface].
No need to be reidentified – A. dalhousieae is very common throughout the Himalaya. Superb photos of it!

Again, I saw this fern growing in the stone crevices and photographed it to post as an addition to my earlier post. I confirmed Dr Chris’s ID in Dr Khullar’s book. It is Asplenium dalhousieae. I had previously mistaken it as Sword Fern (Nephrolepis).
