It is amazing! This individual is not exindusiate that is different from the common sense of the diagnostic character of this species. How to distinguish this species from striatum? I’m a little confused.
Good points, and the two species are close. In my understanding of D. lindbergii, it can have a rudimentary or non-persistent indusium.
The other differences I note and why I think this is D. lindbergii are that the lamina is chartaceous (vs. firmly herbaceous), the lamina dried a very dark color (vs. bright green), and that D. striatum tends to have slightly falcately ascending pinnae, which this plant does not have.
I could definitely be wrong, though.
