Button fern

Pellaea rotundifolia


Tarawera

This fern is quite dainty. The more rounded leaflets are attached to the stipe by a small stalk. It can appear similar to the thread fern (Blechnum filiforme) and the coastal hard fern (B. blechnoides). This fern contains a chemical which is very toxic to the house fly (A. Crowe)
