Killarney Fern

Leptosporangiate ferns (True ferns)
Family: Hymenophyllaceae

Growing in the sort of place it probably has for centuries in many parts of Ireland but now very rare. I think the round leaves are Saxifraga hirsuta growing in the very low light conditions with it.

I estimate the light level as 5 lux or less based on the camera readings. It was hard to see any detail - and I should have had a torch with me.
