This very rare species with a sub-Atlantic distribution is known with certainty only from Lombardy and Sardinia (of dubious presence in Veneto and not seen again since a long time in Piedmont and Emilia-Romagna). The life-cycle can be spent part in water, part on moist to dry soil. It grows on the edges of lakes, ponds and marshes, 30-60 (-300) cm deep into water, from sea level to about 1000 m. The genus name is derived from the Latin 'planta' (sole of the foot), since in some species the leaves have this form, or because several species are able to withstand heavy trampling; the species name in Latin means 'with a single flower'. Flowering period: May to July. Syn.: Littorella uniflora (L.) Asch.



Italian name(s): Littorella (Italia)
