Interests include most living things, (and taxonomy.. sometimes), but primarily ferns and their allies. 'amateur pteridologist’, or just someone not too terrible at fern/ fern ally ID.

ID-wise I'm confident with most ferns in NSW and Victoria, (though doubtful at Hymenophyllaceae, and Schizaeaceae) and also some weeds.
If anyone is interested in a certain plant, or location in ST or SC, but can't get to it, send me a message, and I'll be happy to see what I can do.

Stainless steel ruler in some photos has a half mm scale on one edge, inches on the other, and is 12mm wide, and a total 140mm long.
Otherwise a yellow measure with mm scale.

Can be a bit erratic coming back to you if I'm busy in the field, or with other stuff (increasingly atm).
I'm also looking through older fern observations that need an ID, seeing what I can move on.

What I'm looking out for at present:

Pellaea calidirupium

Tiliqua scincoides (Common Blue-tongued Skink) - far less common than * Tiliqua nigrolutea* (Blotched Blue-tongued Skink) on the Monaro tablelands.

Potentilla recta - becoming a real weed on the Monaro, will be surprised if it's not everywhere in, say, 2025... watch it!
