Adiantum jordanii is a perennial species of maidenhair fern known by the common name California maidenhair.[1]

It is native to California and Baja California. A. jordanii is found in the southernmost part of its range in Baja California with such flora associates as Mimulus aridus and Daucus pusillus.[2]

Each trailing leaf may reach over half a meter in length and is made up of many rounded green segments. Each segment has two to four lobes and it may split between the lobes,[3] the underside of each segment bearing one to four sori.

Adiantum jordanii, from native plant nurseries, is used in native plant and wildlife gardens.
