It would have helped if you had closeups of sterile (non-sporing) fronds.

Hi Betty, definitely not Blechnum cartilagineum. The closest I can come is Pellaea falcata, though it doesn't look totally typical for that (but maybe just because they are fertile fronds). Once again I'm away from home without my books.

Checked Pellaea falcata images on Plantnet. It has to be that I think. There's nothing else similar down here.
