I've been trying to ID this fern for a while, but I can't find it in my wetland plant ID book. Notice the small leaves in between the larger ones, I feel like that'd be a good identifying feature

I believe it is Agrimonia, possibly Agrimonia parviflora.

That certainly looks right, thank you!

You're welcome!
Agrimonia parviflora grows in a flood plain near my house, which is why I recognized it. The foliage is very unusual. It has yellow flowers in the fall; I think they started opening up in September.
