Haha, definitely fernish. Polypodium usually have leaflets that kind of blend into each other like this. We have a few species, and you can tell them apart by looking at the spores on the bottom surface of the leaves, and by looking at the overall shape of the leaflet (are the longest leaflets kind of in the middle or toward the base?). I often have a lot of trouble with this genus.
