    I recently started paying attention to ferns. It seemed so daunting, so many of them and so hard to distinguish them. Well, one at a time. This Polystichum sp. aff. mehrae is very attractive with its stiff shiny leaves. I'd be interested to know what about it prevents naming it Polystichum mehrae.
