Tips on fern identification

For those on facebook, I'm taking a close look during #lockdown at the New Zealand ferns I have growing at home. Some are the usual self-sown suspects, while others that I have in cultivation are maybe a bit more unusual.

I've started with three similar-looking spleenworts: Asplenium oblongifolium, A. obtusatum, and A. lepidotum. Next up will be Asplenium polyodon, and then I might have a look through what I have from the Pteridaceae, Polypodiaceae, and Blechnaceae (and return to more Asplenium later).
