It's leaves look pretty exactly like a "basic" fern or pal frond and are just SO un-oxalis like. I just love it and enjoy it every year, although I am still to flower it unfortunately. It and O. polyphylla var heptaphylla are the strangest I have so far come across in the leaf department, but I'd call palmifrons the one that looks most like a fern leaf. I'd imagine that there is likely to be a picture or two of it up on the wiki but I am just about to head to bed (approaching midnight here) to get some sleep (I can't call it beauty sleep, because it definitely doesn't work that way <grin>). I don't actually get to read much from this list at the moment but having happened to read Diana's message just after it arrived I figured I'd quickly write and add palmifrons to the list as it definitely fits the "ferny" description.
