I'm fairly certain this is a fern of some type but I don't have any handy references to lead me to an ID. Any help would be appreciated. Photographed on the trunk of a tupelo or other hardwood in the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. The individual strap-like fronds are about 3" to 12" long, if I recall correctly.

This was a surprise. I've probably driven past these clusters of alligator flag at the edge of a detention pond dozens of times but never noticed or identified them. There are 3 or 4 clusters of plants around the edges of this pond. I would think these plants are undoubtedly introduced here in Central Texas for water quality purposes.
I just *learned* this plant in the cypress swamps of southern Florida in September (and will be uploading those images shortly).
This tall shrub/small tree was photographed along Island Inn Road, not far off of West Gulf Drive on Sanibel.
