Attracts: Information about floral-faunal relationships for this fern is limited. Insects that feed on the Lady Fern include the aphid, Macrosiphum lambi, and larvae of the moth, Stathmopoda aenea. Larvae of this moth feed on spores of the leaf undersides. White-Tailed Deer browse sparingly on the leaves of this fern during the summer. Because this fern is fairly large in size and sometimes forms colonies, it can provide significant cover for wildlife in those few areas where it is locally common.
