Alternative possible identification of Asplenium polydon based on following links:
ANBG lists both an A. polydon and an A. polyodon which appear distinguishably different. The database entry for Asplenium polydon is unique from the entries for Asplenium polyodon. The image of Asplenium polydon is a better match than the image of Asplenium polyodon. Other links inside IBIS:
