Re: Concerning Polypodium decumanum

If you go to this site, the plant labeled Polypodium decumanum is actually  
Microsorum scolopendria (aka Polypodium scolopendrium or Phymatosorus  
scolopendria).  Several of these images  are labeled  incorrectly.
Polypodium decumanum or Phlebodium decumanum is a rather large fern, and  
rhizome is large and densely covered with hairs and scales.  P. decumanum  
resembles Polypodium aureum on steriods.
Please try this site: _http://www.plantsystematics.org/_ 
(http://www.plantsystematics.org/)    The fern section was compiled by Dr. Robbin Moran.  It 
specializes in ferns  of the tropics, the Americas.
