You need to look at the scales at the base of the fronds to differentiate between this species and A.aethiopicum.

I checked the Aust Virtual Herbarium map for A. atriviride and none of the records are much south of the Shoalhaven River, so aethiopicum seems a pretty safe bet for the Batemans Bay area.
