  • An alluring image this plant name conjures in my mind's eye. Common name for Thelypteris kunthii, a.k.a. southern shield fern.

    Forgive me for noting that the species epithet of this fern, kunthii (after a surname) comes quite close to the indelicate "c" word, and is thus apropos to this listing. Surely coincidence.
