Related to Magnoliids: Magnoliidae


Any of various flowering plants that are neither eudicotyledons nor monocotyledons, having embryos with two cotyledons and usually long, broad leaves and large flowers, and including magnolias, the avocado tree, and the cinnamon tree.

[New Latin Magnoliidae, name of the subclass including magnoliid species in several taxonomic systems : Magnolia, type genus of the subclass; see magnolia + -idae, suff. forming taxonomic names (from pl. of Latin -idēs, masculine patronymic suff., from Greek).]

This was a strong argument for the later origin of "higher" dicots than magnoliids (and monocots).

Therefore, staminodes will have different positions and functions in acyclic magnoliids, polysymmetric rosids, or zygomorphic asterids.
In the magnoliids the staminodes have multiple functions related to pollination, such as attracting and directing pollinators by their color, odor, food supply, and secretions, protecting the ovary against predation, effecting pollination or preventing selfing by their position or by movements, or providing shelter and warmth (Endress, 1984, 1994; Thien et al.
Apart from magnoliid fossils having inner and outer staminodes, there is an abundance of eudicots having one whorl of sterile stamens.
