Spring Break 2023: Campyloneurum phyllitidis

Campyloneurum phyllitidis, the Long strap fern;
Collier county, Florida (12 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

I find the Long strap fern to be fairly iconic of the South Florida interior. An epiphytic plant, this species tends to grow upon other, larger plants (such as cypress trees). It ranges throughout South Florida as well as much of the Caribbean and Central America. It has also been introduced to other regions and is, at times, quite popular as an ornamental plant.
