View location

There is some doubt about the species here reported in "The Wild Plants of Bere, Dursey, Whiddy and other islands in Bantry Bay" by John Akeroyd et al. Certainly at the time I saw the plants it was impossible to be quite sure but there were other more obviously A. adiantum-nigrum plants nearby and these are not the same !
