Abstract (in english)
   Two horizons in the Early Miocene section of the Bílina opencast mine, North Bohemia, have yielded rare and partly new aquatic angiosperms: Elephantosotis dvorakii gen. et sp. nov. (? Scrophulariaceae), Stratiotes schaarschmidtii sp. nov. (Hydrocharitaceae), Hydrochariphyllum buzekii Z. KVAČEK (Hydrocharitaceae), Limnobiophyllum expansum (HEER) Z. KVAČEK (Araceae, Limnobiophylloideae subfam. nov.), Lemnospermum pistiforme V.P. NIKITIN (Araceae, Limnobiophylloideae subfam. nov.), and Lemna cestmirii sp. nov. (Araceae, Lemnoideae). In both horizons that were sandwiched between deltaic-alluvial plain deposits, Salvinia reussii ETTINGSHAUSEN dominates. A revision of some other Tertiary aquatic plants has revealed that leaves similar to those of the Bílina water-soldier, Stratiotes bromeliiformis (SAPORTA) comb, nov., occur in the uppermost Oligocene of S.
   France (Aix-en-Provence), whereas putative remains of the Lemnoideae, Spirodela penicillata (LESQUEREUX) COCKERELL, from the uppermost Eocene of North America (Florissant) represent indeterminable rhizomes and must be excluded from the subfamily
