Stuckenia is a small genus recently segregated from Potamogeton.

S. filiformis

1. Fruit (2.5–) 3–4.5 mm long, not including a tiny beak (the short style persistent as a beak toward one side of end of fruit) leaves mostly sharp-pointed (the younger ones tapering slenderly to a point; older ones often more abruptly pointed).
