#1 is Adiantum capillus-veneris

##2-4 might be Phegopteris connectilis

#5 is a liverwort, not a fern

#6 is a species of Asplenium, similar to A. adiantum-nigrum but not exactly the same

#7 - too blurry!

#8 is another species of Asplenium, similar to A. viride but not exactly the same

#9 is Dryopteris dilatata or a close relative

#10 is Blechnum spicant

Thank you very much Resin. I am going to upload a few more. One may be liverworth as you kindly pointed out but what is the fourth?
Regards.

#1 - another liverwort

#2 - probably Athyrium filix-foemina

#3, #4 - both are flowering plants, not ferns.

#5 looks like Pteris cretica or a close relative

Resin, if you don't mind me asking is there any forum or site which i can use to ID these? These are wild so its possible that they are not in the mainstream nursery trade.
Regards.

None that I know of for Himalayan ferns, unfortunately. That's why I'm a bit cautious about naming them - although ferns often have very wide distributions (the spores can blow long distances), it is possible that some may just be close relatives of the species I named, rather than exactly the same. With a few, I was able to find references to their occurring naturally in the Himalaya as well as here (NW Europe), so with those I am more confident.

Resin, they are close relatives. NW Europe, yes that chain also comes and meets the Himalayas and the Hindu Kush at Pamirs. There is absolute silence on Himalayan ferns on the net. Except for the Chinese the rest, including us?

Yes, rather unfortunate! The Flora of Pakistan http://www.tropicos.org/Project/Pakistan is a good reference, but is not yet complete, and ferns are in the part not yet done. Maybe it will become available soon. I see there is a contact address on their web page (scroll to near the end, just above the references) - maybe it might be worth asking them to put you in contact with whoever is working on the ferns volume?

Resin, without field collectors this kind of project is difficult to undertake. Huge areas are inhospitable to outsiders.
