Pteridium aquilinum
We are in a shady and humid area, which favors the presence of ferns in the underbrush.
The ferns live in humid places, since during their reproduction they need water, even if it is in the form of dew drops. These plants were the first organisms that managed to live out of the water and, in fact, were the dominant vegetation in the Paleozoic era, 400 million years ago.
As a curiosity, you should know that coal was formed in Europe from ferns and other vegetables.
