|Mountain wood fern (Dryopteris campyloptera)|
Dryopteris campyloptera, also known as the mountain wood fern, is a large American fern of higher elevations and latitudes. It was formerly known as Dryopteris spinulosa var. Americana. This species also has been mistakenly referred to D. austriaca and D. dilatata.
A distinctive feature of this fern is that the bottom innermost pinnule on the basal pinnae spans approximately the first two top innermost pinnules on the same pinnae.
