Killarney Fern

Plantae
Leptosporangiate ferns (True ferns)
Hymenophyllales
Family: Hymenophyllaceae
Beara.

I failed to spot the indusia (fruiting bodies) in the low light conditions and only saw them later in this photograph. Most fronds did not have any.

There are cylindrical indusia just visible above and below the centre of the picture.
