Cheilanthes parryi is a species of lip fern known by the common name Parry's lip fern. This plant is native to the Southwestern United States, California, and Baja California, where it grows in rocky crevices in the mountains and deserts.
This fern has leaflets made up of rounded segments with all surfaces covered in long, pale hairs, often thick enough to make the plant quite woolly. On the underside of the leaf the sporangia may be buried beneath the coating of hairs.
