Re: Piptospatha insignis N.E.Br.
Thank you Peter et al. for identifying the fern. Pulling up google and looking at images, I must admit that I like the ones that look a bit fuller and a bit less pine-seedling like.
But I also discovered one image which took me to a different genus entirely - the one that I saw in Australia that looked so similar - the genus I saw there is Schizaea, with the plants the I saw pretty likely being Schizaea dichotoma. But I would have been
hard-pressed to get there without getting the information so willingly contributed, although obviously not aroid-focused. I thank you.

This is Dipteris lobbii, a rheophytic fern with finely divided fronds. We have two Dipteris species here in N Borneo, the other is D. conjugata, a species with much wider divisions that occurs on impoverished soils, often dominating the vegetation.
