Significant sighting

This is only the 7th record of this quillwort in the ACT since 1985. Currently on the rare plant list but possibly under reported would very much appreciate any further records

Author's notes

Submerged non-flowering aquatic with globular sporangia 'sac' embedded in the expanded base of each leaf. Herbarium specimen collected (RWP11450).
