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.
