Remarkable Fern From Iligan

THIS is a Boston-type fern that was originally gathered in Iligan (Agusan province, Mindanao) several years back by a professor from the Central Mindanao University. The species name is not yet recorded in botanical journals. However, plant sellers have been selling and calling it Peruvian Fern.
At the ongoing Flora Filipina Expo at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City (Feb. 23 to March 6), it was entered in the competition and was entered as Nephrolepis Iliganensis (Peruvian Fern).
This fern has long fronds and is spectacular when grown into a large specimen as in photo.
