Re: Arizona Ferns

For a quick tour with abundant Cheilanthoid ferns (Tucson area), Molina Basin on the way to Mt. Lemmon is a great place. The ledges above the creekbed at the entry kiosk hold about a dozen different species within several hundred yards. Stops further up the?road to Mt. Lemmon will yield several?others. Cheilanthes yavapensis, C. wrightii, C. wootoni, C. lindheimeri, C. eatonii, C. tomentosa, Notholaena standleyi, N. grayi, Astrolepis chochisensis ssp. arizonica, A. intergerrima, A. sinuata, Pellaea wrightiana and P. truncata can all be found in the general area.? Sabino Canyon County Park, also?in?Tucson, will yield at least one?other species (Notholeana lemmonii) not found in the Molina?Basin area, as well as several of those also found there.?

Russ Burrow, of the Tohono Chul Botanical Garden might be a local resource with whom to check.

Good luck,
