How to use "Genus dictyophera" in context?

The Genus Dictyophera contains a diversity of aquatic vascular plants that all share a common feature: they have aerial parts (meristems) located off the main stem and roots, which allow the plants to take in water and nutrients and to release waste. In fact, the aerial parts are so important that these plants are often classified in a separate family, the Dictyophoraceae.

Most of the plants in this genus are aquatic, but a few terrestrial species are also present.
