Mildella (after Carl Milde, 1824-1871, of Germany) consists of 8 to 10 species often submerged in the genus Cheilanthes.They are found in rocky habitats in Haiti, Mexico, Central America, the Galapagos, India, and China.

Mildella intramarginalis is very similar to many cheilan-thes, but differs in having false margins extending beyond the false indusia (which is easier said than imagined). An apoga-mous and dimorphic species, it spreads by creeping rhizomes and produces 12- to 18-in. (30- to 45-cm), bluish-green, bi-pinnate skeletal fronds. The basal pinnae are extended downwards, and the fertile fronds with their linear pinnae are taller than the sterile. This is a fern of rocky habitats in the piney
