Not me.  I have almost no experience with Marsilea sp. (aside from a small
patch that was given to me by Steve Pushak and is growing in a dish on a
windowsill)  I'm pretty sure it's not a S.A. plant though.  I thought most
species were from Australia, NG and NZ.  

Aside from that, I'd take anything in Rataj with a grain of salt unless it
were corroborated elsewhere.
