The Class Amborellanae and Subclass Amborellidae were necessary to place Abborelllaes in a Class and Subclass. It is an expression of the special state of the Hydrogen Series quality in the Plant Kingdom.
Amborellanae have only 1 Subclass Amborellidae, 1 Order Amborellales, 1 Family Amborellaceae, 1 Genus Amborella and 1 Species Amborella trichipoda.
