Habitat Cliffs and rocks
Description Grows in wet cliffs and dripping rocks in deep shade. When not growing under very wet conditions, it may dry out during the summer months but recovers fast after the first winter rains.
Sori are at the apex of the lobes. Sporangia covered by indusium flaps (an epidermal outgrowth which covers the sori when young).
