Ferns

Davallia repens

Davallia repens

Today we started to sort our 1200 or so type specimens of ferns as a prepartation for scanning them. A few, like this Davallia, have already been scanned, but most are not. It will be fun; ferns generally makes very nice and tidy collections, thought many are mounted on sheets somewhat larger than the scanners, making the scanning problematic… Davallia is a genus of some 34 epiphytic species with a mostly Old World distribution (but also Australia and Thaiti); some species are cultivated on “fern-balls” (in hanging baskets).
