California is Tom Barr's old hunting ground, and he made several posts on the Aquatic Plant Digest about various collecting trips he made. I can't remember the details, and it would take a long time to search through about three years of his posts, but I remember him mentioning some kind of Echinodorus and several other plants, such as Ludwigia, Crassula, Nitella and hair grass.

I found an APD post from Tom, April 26, 1998 where he says he found cabomba aquatica and a plant that looks like Ludwigia arcuata, except that it is green submersed.

There are more posts from Tom's California collecting trips, and I think they all come after this one. I can't spend any more time hunting. There are more than 50,000 pages of APD to search, and I have work that I can't avoid any more.

Happy hunting!

I recall that I found Najas marina in Lake Cachmua, one of the reservoirs serving Santa Barbara, California. It was not difficult to grow. It is an interesting thorny species of Najas.
