Thanks Nick, U inflata is the likely victim. I have a nice flower going and
most the wild plants are flowering now. Kind of odd. The other larger leafy
species does not have any wheel like floating stems.
U. gibba is present also.
I did find Sag lorata.

These are pools that are subject to a good deal of temperature flux (max
depth about 2 feet).

I'm waiting on camera to arrive or I'd put a photo up.

bad for those families. Doesn't seem like long ago the Challenger explosion
