Marsiliaceae sentence example
- Hydropterideae.-Two very distinct orders of heterosporous Filicales, the Salviniaceae and the Marsiliaceae, are included in this group.

- It has been suggested with considerable probability that the Marsiliaceae are allied to the Schizaeaceae, while the Salviniaceae may possibly be related to the Hymenophyllaceae or to some other family of the Gradatae.
- The Marsiliaceae also include two genera, Marsilia and Pilularia, the latter of which is found in Britain.
