Staghorn fern ID

I bought this as a P. bifurcatum, but it seemed a bit different to me. Does it look any different to you guys? Perhaps just a different cultivar?

Looks like a typical bifurcatum to me. P. hillii looks similar and has many cultivars. The best way to tell if it is a hillii is to mount it on a board and see if the sterile frond is held tight against the board or extends out from the board.
