Nardoo, the Australian name for Marsilia macropus, one of the Rhizocarpeae or Hydropterideae, a small group allied to the club-mosses. They have delicate quatrefoil leaves on slender stalks, and small sporangia containing starchy spores which are used as a bread-stuff. The plant is abundant in swamps in the interior of Australia, where the survivors of the ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition starved on its sorry produce.

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
