I believe the S.A being refered to is South Australia. Can get
confusing at times. As it happens though, Marsilea occurs in South
Africa. My ex found it growing in a natural pond near Port Alfred on
the South African coast. The local Herbarium does not have a
specimen, although specimens from this pond do reside with the
National Botanical Institute in Pretoria. gotta go and get soem for
the coldwater tank sometime.
