We discussed the woodsia Ilvensis and agreed that it was a mythical species.
In this first blind endeavor I got, of course, no clew to woodsia glabella.
Mr. Frost, to whom they were first submitted, pronounced them woodsia glabella.
Among the specimens of woodsia glabella brought away were a few which I judged to belong to a different species.
The fescue (Festuca ovina), a little fern (woodsia), and a saussurea ascend very near the summit.
Thought by some botanists to be a smooth form of woodsia ilvensis.
Although the two common species of woodsia were near at hand, woodsia glabella was still eluding my search.
