Identify fern? - Pics included

tubby3September 18, 2005

Hi, I know very little about ferns, but I found some growing on a brick wall that I have never seen around here before. They have rhizomes similar to rabbits foot fern, only thinner. The sori grow in a line along the edges of the leaves.

Anyone know what variety they are?

Thanks in advance!

It looks like it could be Pteris vittata, a fern that is native to Asia but which has escaped into the wild.
