Glossostigma diandrum is small submerged rooted hydrophyte seen in waterbodies and rivers and streams around the world. The Glossostigma genus is divided into two different species: Glossostigma Elatinoides (commonly referred to as “Glosso”) and Glossostigma Diandrum. The main difference between this two species is their size. G. Diandrum seems to grow smaller (approximately 1/2 inch) with linear leaves. Its flowers are 1/8 of an inch in diameter. Its cousin, G. Elatinoides grow up to 1.5 inches and have narrow leaves (spoon shaped). Its flowers are 3/8 of an inch in diameter. Both of these plants are bright green and originate from the Australian continent.
