Aspleniaceae‎‎‎ (Fern) with comparative images:
Species, genus & family pages of‎‎‎‎ Aspleniaceae‎‎‎ are now with comparative images. On clicking the link of species, one can check the complete details.
May I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identification in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this family (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified/ wrongly identified images, it will be really nice. Pl. circulate it widely, for the benefit of all concerned.

You missed Asplenium trichomanes, another common species in the Himalayan region.
