Moss ID help request

wyanokieAugust 11, 2007

Hello, can anyone help me identify this moss? It grows in the woods beside my house in northern New Jersey. There are many clumps and most seem to have their sporophytes up at the moment

Looks like a Polystichum species to me but I could be wrong:
check out these sites and maybe you will run across it.

Also The University of Southern Illinois has a great bryology department and you may want to contact the leading
bryologist there.
