hmm, it isn't cinnamon fern, because that fern has its spores separate from its green leaves. Silvery glade fern is a possibility, check that out and see if it looks right.

Thank you so much, I'm trying to start learning ferns and honestly I am completely failing right now. Its a tad overwelming and I know that the spore location is the best way of identifying the species. Do you have an specific guide book that you would recommend for this stuff?

You know, I am not great with ferns, and mostly learn by following around people who know them. But, I know a lot of people like this little book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1001773.Fern_Finder
