Paku Jari Merah - Filicales

I read that this is a  rare fern found in Sarawak. So I hope some of you may be able to enlighten me about it.

I would be interested in looking for it in Sarawak and photographing it.

Maybe I think this is Lygodium. Sometimes found in old rubber plantation or very old secondary forest. Certainly not in peat swamp areA.

Yes it is a Lygodium. (Facts can be found in various articles by Singaporeans).

My garden does have it, but I found it nuisance, I pulled it out. Esp. if the weather is cooling enough, it will grow and tendrils.
Some how it is a more beautiful type of fern to my eyes. One stage, I planted it ..
