Microsorum diversifolium   Kangaroo Fern

Microsorum diversifolium whole

On a boat trip up the Gordon river form Strahan, we were allowed to land at a prepared site for a short walk into the dense temperate rain forest. Even better than just finding new plants was the fact that they were labelled. M. diversifolium is a native of eastern Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. It is often found growing on the trunks of tress as in the photo.
