Lorinseria, areolata, West Virginia

Brooks and Margolin gave localities for the Narrow-leaved Chainfern, Lorinseria areolata (L.) Presl, in West Virginia as “in mountain bogs”, citing Droop Mountain Swamp in Pocahontas County and Pine Swamp in Mineral County. They also stated that “both the colonies found in the state are in sphagnum bogs, . . .”. Nicely recently reported an additional station in Greenbrier County.
