P. silver Velvet is a new hybrid that is a cross between P. elephantotis and P. willinckii.  It is suspected Siam Exotica in Thailand produced this hybrid.  The shield fronds are toll and narrow like a P. elephantotis.  The fertile fronds are wide with forked fingers. 

Not much is written on the P silver velvet, but I assume there are spore patches on the bottom of the fingers.
