Polypody agg. - Polypodium vulgare agg.
Various species of Polypody are very similar in appearance, and need to be separated by detailed examination of the sporing frond. Our VC55 experts have indicated that they are willing to check specimens from our area sent to them by NatureSpot users (contact NatureSpot for more details). Any Polypody records not subjected to detailed examination should be recorded on this Polypody aggregate page.
