One of a handful of ferns that came from China that I know nothing about.

Evergreen fronds that look a bit like Nephrolepis. For the second year running, an internet search for information turned up ... me, saying I didn't know anything about it! Sorry I haven't been able to add anything significant in that time.

The passage of time has revealed that this is actually Goniophlebium lachnopus (I obtained it as Polypodioides pseudolachnopus), its range extends from the Himalayas through to China and N. Thailand. It wasn't hardy enough to prosper in my cold greenhouse.
