Kingdom Plantae | Division Spermatophyta | Order Alismatales
  The two classes of this division are the Monocotyledons and Dicotyledons, named with reference to the number of seed leaves (cotyledons) present in the seeds.

Class Monocotyledoneae
The following species are true marine forms. They cannot be confused with plant-like green algae because their veined leaves are larger and they have flowers.

Fan Sea Grass
Family Hydrocharitaceae

They occur on soft substrates in sheltered rocky areas and reefs. The thin oval leaves with veins easily distinguishes them from similar-looking algae. (Leaves 1-2 cm long).
