Tectaria zeilanica (Oak leaf fern) is a species of fern in the Tectariaceae family. It is native to Sri Lanka, India, and the Indochina region in southern China and Vietnam, and Taiwan.

It is a small fern, with erect fertile fronds, and sterile fronds shaped like small oak leaves. The name is often erroneously spelled 'zeylanica', but it was originally published as 'zeilanica', and this is not a correctable error under the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants.
