Strange Polypodium Interjectum found

The above Polypodium interjectum was found when I was walking up Vicarage Lane in Burton In Kendal.
It seems striking to note the branch off or the pinnae in the outline of a miniature frond. You will see the reverse side of the frond together with plenty of sori in the next photograph.
Strange as it might be, a similar situation was replicated with two further fronds also showing this strange breakdown and you can see the photos below of the others, just so we dont complicate I have numbered the fronds 1,2 and 3.
It makes me wonder if the two populations are related because of two points, its is quite rare to get similary within variation, but surely it can't just be a coincidence when they are only say approx 200 yards apart from one another.
