Bull. Torrey Bot. Club10: 61. 1883
Phenology: Sporulating late spring–fall.
Habitat: Rocky slopes and ledges, usually on igneous substrates
Elevation: 700–1200 m
Cheilanthes pringlei is often confused with young, sterile plants of C. fendleri, but it is easily distinguished from the latter by having rachises that are grooved adaxially. This species appears to be restricted to the Sonoran Desert; records from Gila and Cochise counties, Arizona, and southern New Mexico are based on misidentifications.
