Ferns and Fern Allies of Wisconsin

Botrychium pallidum W. H. Wagner
pale moonwort
no photos yet        

This is a relatively new addition to the Wisconsin flora and as of 2014 is only reported from one county here. It is not yet in the key to species on this web site, but it is similar to Botrychium matricariifolium. Be cautious with photos of this species from other web sites as some appear not to conform to the species description (a little caution is always recommended with web photos because there is no screening process for accuracy).
