Description

Frond found lying in gutter. Oddly this is the exact same place where I found a sporeling growing out of a drainage pipe (5 October 2016 - see https://inaturalist.nz/observations/4274405) noting at the time that 'I have yet to find the 'parent' plant(s) source for this foreign fern in Mt Albert. In the meantime this is the third occurrence of young plants of this species I have found in the suburb'. I still haven't found the adult in situ but I assume that this frond was knocked down / washed down the street in the torrential rain experienced throughout the day.
