(2000a, 2011) argued that the Pennipollis plant was a monocot, since some Alismatales (including some Araceae) have pollen with a similar loose reticulum and granular infratectal layer, and some have ebracteate male flowers reduced to one stamen.
However, considering the most recent phylogeny, Limnobiophyllum must be now included in Lemnoideae of Araceae and within Alismatales. Some specimens correspond to angiosperm reproductive organs.

This alkaloid is present in members of the Magnoliid clade (Canellales, Piperales, Laurales, and Magnoliales), with many representatives in the Magnoliales (143 Annonaceae and 35 Magnoliaceae species), as well as in phylogenetically distant Angiosperms (Alismatales, Rosales, Sapindales, Malvales, and Gentianales).
The latest classification system (known as APG system: Angiosperm Phelogeny Group system), of the families and orders of the flowering plants which based largely on DNA sequences of the chloroplast, nuclear ribosomal, and mitochondrial genes, In this system the order Alismatales put in monocot clad (Fig.1) that included six orders addition to Alismatales, which included (13) family along with Hydrocharitaceae, that the Hydrilla belong to him [5].
