Peter is not a subscriber but had some questions for those
of you who might like to reply to him. I'm guessing he would
be best advised to put a photo on a website and point us to
it so that we can see the plant habit, the shape of a whole
frond, and also a close-up of the sori on the back side of a
fertile leaf. There are some very common "painted ferns" but
I think there are a range of species that show these reflective
