This delicate little pteridophyte desert fern was found growing from the shade under a massive pile of boulders in the Chihuahuan Desert at the far eastern limit of its range near the Texas-Chihuahua border just south of El Paso in the Quitman Mountains. It is most often found on cliffs and shady overhangs throughout most of the American Southwest and Northern Mexico.
