What type of fern?

Is this a rabbits foot fern?

I recently bought a small fern (4 inch pot) at a flea marketno identification was with it. The fronds are triangular in shape, have divided leaflets and have tiny hairs all over them, making them feel fuzzy. I cannot see any rhizomes yet, but as I said, it is a very small plant. The fronds are about 6 inches long. Any ideas as to what it might be?

Likely a Hemionitus palmata. Strawberry fern.
