Hello Bill,
    There is a Micosorium musifolium which has gone under the genus name of
Phymatoides and Polypodium.  It is in Holttum's Flora of Malaysia and there
is a line illustration in David L. Jones Enc. of Ferns. If you look back
into volumes from the 19th century Pyrrosias were listed as Polypodiums.
Perhaps the genus name was given to you incorrectly.
