Maidenhair Fern (Adiantum aleuticum): Perennial fern with fan-shaped delicate fronds common on wet cliffs and forested wet areas, especially on slopes and rocky areas. Expected throughout the region, except possibly the far northern parts (FNA map), this species has been collected (in Arctos as A. pedatum) widely throughout the region south of Juneau and Icy Strait, though most collections appear to be from islands.
