Compound Leaves

Carefully count the number of leaves in each whorl on the stem in 2 or 3 places and then chose from the following:

Roughly Divided

Coontail Hornwort whorl

Each leaf is a bit different, and counting the
number of leaves in a whorl is very difficult.
Finely Divided

finely divided

Most whorls have four leaves, some 3. The leaves are finely
dissected, with an overall appearance somewhat like a feather.

If you don't think your plant is represented above try going back a level and choosing again.
