Anogramma leptophylla   Jersey Fern

Anogrmma leptophylla

There were few places wet enough for ferns in Crete even in early Spring but the bottom of this deep gorge was one of them. Nevertheless I was surprised to find this fern which previously I had only known from the Channel Islands. It is quite common on vertical cliffs in Crete though.
