Thanks for sharing the photo.  However, judging from the sori, the  fern 
looks like Microsorum thailandicum; a fern from Thailand. Interesting  how plants 
are making their way around the world.  Elaphoglossum herminieri  (as well as 
all of the Elaphoglossum species) has a solid mass of sori  covering the 
underside of the frond, and most typically will be black in  color.  The two 
plants, Microsorum thailandicum and Elaphoglossum  herminieri are very similar in 
appearance, but Microsorum usually will  have scattered sori.
