Fern ID

Rescued this fern from a big box store. Looked pretty bad. It is very happy now in my sunroom but i cannot figure out its name. Seems to be a creeping fern. You can just see a couple of of the runners in the center of the photo against the pot. I'm thinking a polypody maybe. But the runners are not fuzzy just smooth. Thanks for any help with a family or genus name.

Phlebodium aureum or similar (there are so many species of tropical plants that something can look close but not be the same).

I thought Phlebodium too but was thrown by the hairless runners
