leaflets are totally different from your suggested id

I also thought so …! 


Well not really so and definitely not “totally different” (without mentioning the only other possibility?!), as it’s a young immature frond and sterile leaflets.  I did wonder if it is not juvenile L. flexuosum – the only other possibility – also abundantly common, but the photos are totally inadequate, so it is not worth bothering much with.


so nice to hear from you.
i wonder if juvenile leaflets are soooo very different from the mature ones and so far apart.
not a fern expert by any means
