Please identify this ? Fern seen on the roadside at Valparai.
The plant is liverwort Trichocolea tomenlilla
The poor picture quality does not help in its identification, but it is definitely not a Trichocolea.
I thought it was a Selaginella sp.
It is a small sporophyte of selaginella… heterophylly is evident according to me….
It is not Trichocolea (Marchantiophyta). It appears to be Selaginella sp.
