Cystopteris tennesseensis Shaver. Tennessee Bladder Fern. Phen: Apr-Jun. Hab: Moist to dry outcrops of calcareous rocks, including coquina limestone (‘marl’) in the outer Coastal Plain. Dist: PA, KY, IL, WI, and IA south to NC, nw. GA, n. AL, AR, and OK.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Other Comments: This species is a fertile allotetraploid derived from hybridization between C. bulbifera and C. protrusa. Its genome can be symbolized BBPP. Haufler, Windham, & Ranker (1990) consider this a "successfully fledged and vigorous young species", adapted to a hybrid niche not successfully utilized by either parent.
