Botrychium dissectum from Jeff, in Indiana

I wish I could. Found it in the woods in Bloomington, IN.

Hi Jeff,

I wasn’t positive on this, so I sent your image to George and Kay Yatskievych [Kay published the book on Indiana Wildflowers, as you may know, and George is, among other things, a fern expert.]  Everyone agrees that it is the ‘dissectum‘ form of Botrychium dissectum, a fern in the Ophioglossaceae.  This specimen is not fertile in the image.

Thanks for your interest!
