In the absence of evidence for the glandular tipped hairs (requiring a 10x hand lens or better), it is probably best to classify this as Pleurosorus rutifolius. Note that the category list is not correct, P. subglandulosis should be Pleurosorus rutifolius ssp. subglandulosus. Although these classifications do have a habit of changing with further cladistic work.
