Adiantum atroviride (Adiantaceae)

Adiantum atroviride

Nothing could beat caressing a maiden’s hair, but caressing a maidenhair fern comes second!

This species was previously called Adiantum aethiopicum, which is now a name applied to a temperate species.

More on this in time!

About David Tng

I am David Tng, a hedonistic botanizer who pursues plants with a fervour. I chase the opportunity to delve into various aspects of the study of plants. I have spent untold hours staring at mosses and allied plants, taking picture of pollen, culturing orchids in clean cabinets, counting tree rings, monitoring plant flowering times, etc. I am currently engrossed in the study of plant ecology (a grand excuse to see 'anything I can). Sometimes I think of myself as a shadow taxonomist, a sentimental ecologist, and a spiritual environmentalist - but at the very root of it all, a "plant whisperer"!

    Saw this species during my visit to NE QLD. Hadn’t then realised it had been described as a separate species, and was very impressed by its size, thinking it was Adiantum aethiopicum on steroids!
