Re: Marsilea crenata or quadrifolia?

This sounds similar to the Marsilea that I have, but I thought it was M.
quadrifolia according to the description in rataj.  The petioles were only
about an inch or so tall and all the new leaves are a single lobe.  How does
one tell which species these are?  Whatever it is, it's a great plant!  We
have moderately hard water here and the LFS reports little success with
glosso.  E. tenellus is okay, but the round leaves of the marsilea are a
welcome contrast.
