from what ive read and seen (which isnt much) phillipine ferns have a more waffled look to them than regular java's. That one looks pretty waffley to me so i would have to go with phillipine. However just remember they are both technically java ferns just subspecies

<had to kill the evil post count.. lol>

Yee Sorry i just edited the post.. Both are different species of java

I also read that the philippine fern has more of a "hammered" look to it, or as you described waffled. I just looked at the ferns in my brothers tank and they are 100% regular java ferns and they look smoother compared to mine
