I believe this is Dryopteris expansa based on ID help on iNaturalist and looking at Burke Museum Herbarium images http://biology.burke.washington.edu/herbarium/imagecollection.php?SciName=Dryopteris%20expansa

Originally thought this was Gymnocarpium dryopteris (Common oak fern ) not certain.

These are mycotrophic plants that obtain their organic carbon from a host green plant by tapping into an intermediary mycorrhizal fungus attached to the roots of the host plant.

Myco-heterotrophy is a symbiotic relationship between certain kinds of plants and fungi, in which the plant gets all or part of its food from parasitism upon fungi rather than from photosynthesis.
