Vijayadas ji, by now we have come across A. caudatum and A. lunulatum
Any simple visual difference among these two ?
 
Regards.

What I can gather from information on net is that sori bearing part of leaflet is forming a curve (semilunar) almost reaching the base on inner margin. In A. caudatum basal two sides almost triangular, and fertile upper margin straight, more or less horizontal.
 
In that sense our plant is closer to A. lunulatum.

Dear all,
 
Here I am trying to picture out the difference between A.lunulatum and A.caudatum
 
This is not a technical discription.
 
1. A.lunulatum- entirely glabrous, pinnae pale green rarely dark green, pinnules are fan shape or lunar shape or in crescent form and fold down with sori (linear),stipe glabrous long and dark black
 
2. A.caudatum - hairy, pinnae green ,hairs pale brown and giving a pale brownish color to whole, pinnules not crescent but almost straight  fold down with sori but length is very short compared to A.lunulatum, stipe is hairy brownish due to hair color short as compared to lamina.
   If the stipe is glabrous ,A.zollingeri but no tail as in A.caudatum
