    How to use "Liliopsid family" in context?

    The Liliopsid Family (in order:

    Liliopsida) is a taxon of extinct unilobed eukaryotic cells that lived during the early Proterozoic. Many taxa in this family are known from crushing fossils; they may represent a major component of the oldest cellular life.

    The family was first proposed by Elso Barghoorn in 1951. Some genera, such as "Lulworthia", have since been reclassified, and some relationships within the family remain unresolved.

    Liliopsid cells may have been the first cells to undergo oxygenic photosynthesis.
