Blechnum spicant has different looking fertile and sterile

fronds. I could not find a picture on iSpot illustrating this, but maybe I missed it. If fertile and sterile fronds look the same the fern is not B. spicant.

Spore caps

The shape of these are round or oval and are better than leaf shape for working it out.
