A Lycopodium species from Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka Lycopodium 1b-1.jpg Sri Lanka Lycopodium 1a-0.jpg

As indicated in my previous mailing I have been a member of BPS for many years. I recently had the privilege and pleasure of visiting Sri Lanka where I was very impressed by the great diversity of ferns and related  species. Although there is a checklist available on line I have no literature on the fern flora. I have managed to identify a few species but have others for which I would be very grateful for help in identification if at all possible. This Lycopodium species, with pendulous habit, trailing down a bank, was photographed in the Sinharaja Reserve, Sri Lanka on 25th February 2019. I would be very grateful if anyone might possibly be able to suggest a species identification

Many thanks

  1. This is Lycopodiella cernua which is relatively common species in Sri Lanka and used in floral decorations. The most preferable habitat is roadside banks.
