The soft green blades are narrow with 6 to 12 stalked and alternate, mitten-shaped pinnae pointing towards the apex. Sori with abortive spores are few and linear.

Asplenium antiquum in a conservatory setting.

range and habitat: This extremely rare sterile hybrid is native to acid environments in the British Isles, Europe, Russia, and the Himalayas as well as a lonely site or two in the eastern United States.
