Help with a fern identification, please

Hi All-

Can someone please help me identify this fern? I bought it in NY city at the farmer's market and the gentleman who sold it to me didn't know what it was called.

I can't fully identify it, other than to suggest that it looks like a Pteris species. There's a lot of them, even not counting all the different varieties and hybrids.

Thanks all...it seems to be a Pteris, and, unfortunately, right now a dying Pteris. Any thoughts on care for Pteris?
