Bull. Torrey Bot. Club6: 33. 1875
Phenology: Sporulating late spring–summer.
Habitat: Calcareous cliffs and ledges, usually on limestone
Elevation: 100–700 m
Although scattered throughout much of California, Cheilanthes cooperae is apparently rare and quite localized. It appears to be most closely related to C. viscida, from which it differs in lacking glandular pubescence. The ranges of the two species do not overlap, and they seem amply distinct.
