Microsorum scolopendria?

  • Subject: [ferns] Microsorum scolopendria?

I recently received a fern under this name, a.k.a. wart fern. It appears to 
have been mass-produced, being a plug from a 72-unit tray. Here is an older 
plant with entire fronds similar to the one received:


Elsewhere, this species is described as having pinnatifid fronds, and most of 
the web photos are consistent with that. The rhizomes are a tangled mass like 
Microsorum musifolium. The venation is netted, but more obscure than that of 
musifolium. What is this plant?
