CAYUGA FLORA (1926) NOTES: Moor of acid peat bogs, mostly in sandy regions ; rare. Aug.-Sept. Woodwardia Bog (D. in C. U. Herb.!) ; moor of peat bogs, Junius; n. e. end of Duck Lake. N. S. to Fla., La., and Ark., chiefly along the coast ; also inland in the Great Lakes region. Sterile specimens of this species resemble those of Osmunda, Thelypteris, and Athyrium, from which they may be distinguished by the fronds being scattered and by the presence of areolae in the venation along the midrib. The numerous bundles in the lower part of the stipe also serve to distinguish this genus from Osmunda.
