quillwort

Isoetes

Isoëtes, commonly known as the quillworts, is a genus of plants in the class Isoëtopsida and order Isoëtales. They are lycopods. There are about 140–150 species, with a cosmopolitan distribution but often scarce to rare. Some botanists split the genus, separating two South American species into the genus Stylites, although molecular data place these species among other species of Isoëtes, so the genus does not warrant taxonomic recognition.

Definition of quillwort in the English dictionary

The definition of quillwort in the dictionary is any aquatic tracheophyte plant of the genus Isoetes, with quill-like leaves at the bases of which are spore-producing structures: family Isoetaceae, phylum Lycopodophyta.
