Podostemaceae is a family of eudicotyledonous rheophytes with unique morphology, sometimes resembling algae, lichens or bryophytes. This study evaluates the taxonomic value of silica-body morphology (presence, location, size, shape, ornamentation) in species representing the three subfamilies: Tristicha trifaria (Bory ex Willd.) Spreng. (Tristichoideae), Weddellina squamulosa Tul. (Weddellinoideae) and Diamantina lombardii Novelo, C.T.Philbrick & Irgang (Podostemoideae). T. trifaria and D… Expand
