RE: Fern I.D. help

After going through a long search of around 100 ferns, I found what it is I believe:
Intermediate Woodfern (Dryopteris intermedia)

RE: Fern I.D. help

That would have been my guess

RE: Fern I.D. help

Its Evergreen Woodfern (Dryopteris intermedia). You can tell because it is evergreen and if you look at the bottom pinna (leaf), the bottom innermost pinnule (little leaflet)is shorter than the next one out.

Hope that helps!
