1421 Killarney fern Trichomanes speciosum
This site contains a greater number of sporophytes than found elsewhere in the UK. However the plants are small, and in many cases not fully developed, with mature spore-producing plants extremely rare. The great significance of this site lies in that the sporophytes appear to be recently developed from gametophytes, a phenomenon that has only been rarely recorded elsewhere in the United Kingdom.
