Did you look up what Sporangia is?

It is part of the Java fern, and develops on the underside of the leaf for the sexual reproduction of the plant when it is emersed.

No, that's how the plant reproduces. Because Microsorum reproduce asexualy those black spots appear just before the cells begin to divide and produce young plantlets...

Lets make sure we're talking about the right thing here. The Sporangia will show up as small "dots" on the bottom of the leaves. These are good, and are part of the plant.

Or are you talking about algae which shows up as patches on both sides of the leaf?
