Pl. check Selliguea oxyloba as per

Yes, it is S. oxyloba – a very common and well known, easy species to recognise. You will see my discussion about its separation from S. hastata (not in Nepal) in my book, Taxonomic Revision of Three Hundred Indian Subcontinental Pteridophytes (2008).  I hope you have got the main recent literature.  No need for further website refs as far as I’m concerned – I presented the relevant books to the National Herbarium, which you can consult there.
When you contact Nepal’s National Herbarium – as you should be doing – you can ask my student, Dr. Dhan Raj Kandel, for fern-identification, to ensure you do not make any mistaken identifications in your photo posting. When did you last visit there?  All the ferns are correctly identified and organised in order there and you need to refer to it to check your tentative identifications and to learn the species

Incidentally in that RBGE Thai website, someone not so familiar with the species has muddled it up and added a photo of Pichisermollodes stewartii as well – this is why your photo is quite different from theirs, which you may have been wondering about.
