A pretty dwarf Cys-topteris-like Fern, forming dense tufts in vertical fissures of rocks fully exposed to the sun. Fronds bright green, two or three times divided, with deep brown bristly-scaled stalks: highly fragrant with the scent of new-mown hay. A native of the mountains of Corsica and Swizterland. Probably hardy in favorable situations.
