Bull. Torrey Bot. Club29: 633. 1902
Phenology: Sporulating summer–fall.
Habitat: At bases of large boulders on dry to moist slopes, primarily in mountainous, xeric regions, occasionally forming large mats
Elevation: 1000–2500 m
Bommeria hispida is the only member of this genus to occur north of Mexico. It is the most morphologically distinct species in the genus, having a relatively small leaf size, dissected segments, and copious and diverse leaf indument. Natural hybrids involving B. hispida are unknown. The pedate blade shape, lack of colored farina abaxially, and presence of both needlelike and coiled trichomes abaxially serve to distinguish this species from sympatric members of Cheilanthes, Notholaena, and Pentagramma.
Reports of Bommeria hispida in California (C. H. Haufler 1979) are based on old specimens with questionable locality data.
