Pellaea boivinii Hook wild fern from Western Ghats Tamilnadu.

But why is the specimen all folded up and not pressed properly?    Not a good example to set…..   People should take the trouble to prepare and arrange really goo, clearly visible herbarium-specimens, not folded and the lower pinnae folded in half. We can’t see the frond-shape otherwise.
