A young frond of the fern called `ama`uma`u or `ama`u for short. This common fern is found in the wet forests and open areas of Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park. The fern is a member of the Blechnum fern family and is endemic to Hawai`i. Halema`uma`u, the fire pit within Kilauea caldera, means “the house of `ama`uma`u fern.” This fern was photographed on a connector trail between the Byron Ledge and Devastation trails near the Kilauea caldera.
