Quite right, it is Nardoo, and a fern, but it wasn't on our list. I've added it and the other two species for which there are far south coast records in Australia's Virtual Herbarium. OK if I use your photo as the ID image for this species in the field guide on this website? Looks like it is on an isolated farm dam. I assume fragments or spores get moved around the country by ducks or other waterbirds occasionally. There are very few south coast records, many more inland.

There's a database error somewhere. This was linked to from an email reporting a sighting for Blechnum penna-marina.

Yeah, the person who put it in just suggested that because Marsilea was not an option at the time. I've added 3 Marsilea species to the list now, so the problem should be sorted.
