Description
Drynaria x dumicola is a natural hybrid between Drynaria rigidula and D. sparsisora. It is distinguished from D. rigidula by its sessile pinnules somewhat constricted above their bases; and from D. sparsisora by the pinna margins between major lateral veins inconspicuously incised. From both species Drynaria x dumicola is distinguished by the pinnatisect fronds, by the costular nectaries in either or both pinna axils, or lacking, and by the irregularly orbicular oblong or elongate sori impressed into the lamina (Bostock, 1998).
Habitat
Drynaria x dumicola occurs in Araucarian vine forest or littoral vine forest.
Threatening processes
The River Heads population is threatened by development as it occurs within close proximity of a popular boat and ferry terminus (Bostock & Spokes 1998).
Status notes
Drynaria x dumicola is listed as Vulnerable under the Queensland Nature Conservation Act 1992.
