a small fern-type plant with orange spots (spores/seeds ?) on reverse of leaves. I have seen them grown quite large and growing out of walls etc.

The orange spots ...

... are sori (sing. sorus). The sori are where the spores are produced.

I was fairly sure they were to do with the spores (if not actually the spores), but it is nice to know the correct name.
Much appreciated.
