Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- An order of cryptogamic plants of the class Hepaticæ, coextensive with the family Jungermanniaceæ, and therefore including both the anacrogynous and the acrogynous scalemosses. It embraces 134 genera, of which 18 belong to the
Anacrogynæand 116 to the Acrogynæ(see these terms). In Schiffner's revision, adopted by Engler, the genus Jungermannia is no longer recognized, being divided up among a large number of genera belonging to different tribes, but especially to the tribes Lejeuneeæ and Frullanieæ.

“The lower members of the Jungermanniales are also thalloid, but the thallus never has the complicated structure characteristic of the Marchantiales, and progress is in the direction of the differentiation of the plant into stem and leaf.”
“The Marchantiales form an obviously natural evolutionary group, and the same is probably true of the Jungermanniales, although in neither case can the partial lines of progression within the main groups be said to be quite clear.”
