As should be obvious now I was looked at the underneath of a fern frond and the yellow blobs are sporangia - where the spores will be produced.

Congratulations to Wilma who deserves a  gold star for spotting they were spores under a fern frond and my thanks to all who had a go and made a guess.


  1. Thanks John. I get the dumb cluck award.

  2. I'm glad to finally find out. I never would have guessed it,but I gave my poor little brain a twist looking in my books. Thanks John.

    1. Thanks for trying Bonnie. The things were very deceptive in looks and I had to double check to make sure.

  3. Yea! Thanks for the star. :-)

    1. You're going to need a bigger bucket for all those gold stars ;>)


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
