The ferns below were from my pots. They were much smaller in size compared to the ones found in the wild (above).

A post in the Nature Society (Singapore) website in October 2009 named this fern as Cyclosorus gongylodes by Dr. Benito Tan. However, in the Ferns of Thailand website, this name was indicated as the synonym of Cyclosorus interruptus. Also, the synonym Cyclosorus gongylodes had "auct. non" after it, meaning that it was a misapplied name.
