This looks to be Riccia spongiosula, but would need to confirm with a microscope! If it is not R. spongiosula then it may be R. marginata.

If I were lucky enough to see these plants again, could I submit a specimen to the ANBG for verification to species?

Chris Cargill, curator of the cryptogam herbarium at the ANBG and Riccia guru, tells me she'd be happy to see fresh material of that Riccia.

ID confirmed as Riccia spongiosula by Chris Cargill on 4 July 2017, from a live specimen which I sent to her at ANBG.
