Yes, it is a Davallia (commonly called rabbit's foot), but I don't think it is possible to be certain of which species based on this photo. They all have the furry rhizomes.

Unfortunately I don't matey :( I only saw it and took a picture of it. I don't have one. I'm watching one on ebay....and it seems to be a lot for a fern. So I'm going to a garden centre today to see if they have any....

Oopps - thought it was yours! Good luck in hunting one down, they are actually almost common in my area.

went to the most "local" garden centre to me today. by local I mean 15 minute walk, then a 40 minute bus, then 20 minute walk to get to it. hehe.

but went through their whol indoor and outdoor fern collection....and nothing....

mind you bought some air plants....I'll mount them on one of the pieces of drift wood.
