Staghorn Fern

Staghorn Fern
Going by the curious name of Platycerium superbum, native to Australia.

The fern is native to north-east New South Wales (north of Nabiac) and Queensland. It can also be found in parts of Malaysia. In propagated form, the plant is grown successfully as far south as Victoria.

During the 1990s, the fern was also discovered on the Hawaiian Islands where they are now considered a "problem species".

Tewantin, Queensland.
