Many authors assign Cheilanthes parryi to Notholaena, but it is distantly related (at best) to the type species of that genus, and we concur with R. M. Tryon and A. F. Tryon (1982) that it should be tranferred to Cheilanthes. Further support for this generic placement is provided by the fact that C. parryi hybridizes with C. covillei to form the sterile diploid C. × parishii. Cheilanthes parryi is most often confused with C. feei, from which it can be distinquished by its coarser, denser pubescence and larger ultimate segments.
