Aloha. First off, I am not a pteridologist or fern
and fern ally specialist....so I may be wrong.
Many, but not all botanists use Ollgaard, B. 1987. A
revised classification of the Lycopodiaceae s. lat.
Opera Botanica 92:153-178., as the reference for
these plants. Those plants originally described under
Plegmariurus, are now considered Huperzia under this
treatment. Vegetatively, the plant you show looks
like it falls into the Phlegmaria group of Huperzia.
Perhaps a pteridologist on this forum can make a
better determination for you. Many of the earlier
names were lumped into Lycopodium... Here in Hawaii,
the genus Huperzia is used for the species once
classified under Lycopodium or Phlegmariurus.
