Hydroleaceae R. Brown. Hydrolea Family.

A family of one genus and 11-12 species, herbs and shrubs of water bodies and wetlands, primarily tropical. The Hydroleaceae is not closely related to Hydrophyllaceae; recent molecular data confirm the view prevailing through most of the 19th century that Hydrolea should be placed in its own family.
