I found this unusual plant at Jones Bridge Park, Fulton County side, right bank, riparian, of the Chattahoochee River.  Thanks in advance for any help.

Definitley correct genus, but probably either S. biternatum (southern grape fern) or S. dissectum (cut-leaf grape fern).  Hard to be positive from the photo.

I now believe you are correct, Rich - have to, as I am no where close to being a botanist.  The range of B. oneidense does not extend down here, though the Chattahoochee Zone would be a good highway for it.  Allyson Read, biologist, CRNRA, suggests B. biternatum, too.  She reinforced my suspicion that plant collecting in the Park is a major no-no.

Appreciate your in-put and knowledge.
