Locality: small freshwater stream, Havelock Island. Andaman Islands.
I think this is an Acrostichum fern, probably A. aureum due to the rounded leaf-tips.

Yes this is A. aureum. Thsi species is known as Kharkhari in Orissa and found only in Bhitarkanika mangrove ecosystem (in the banks of both Brhamani and Baitarani river and also in Mahanadi delta of Paradeep coast).
