Thanks Ivan. I will update this post and indicate you as the identifier.
Thank you Ivan for the identification and Michael for the update!
Tomorrow i’m leaving for a two month trip to the Atlantic Forest, SE Brazil and will keep a vigilant eye on ferns and relatives hoping to come back with new material.:)
That’s great Myriam! I look forward to seeing photos of your new collections.
