In spite of these similarities, Amphiuma vertebrae (and the fossils) differ from those of Siren and Pseudobranchus in having less extensive alar processes, lacking widely diverged aliform
processes, having postzygapophyseal crests, and in having differently positioned transverse processes.

Publishing in Minneapolis has issued over a dozen English-language translations in the last few years, mostly of Latin American writers, although there is a scattering of Portuguese-language ones as well, but from Portugal rather than Brazil.
The characters diagnostic of Duabanga wood are: diffuse, predominantly solitary vessels (multiples occasionally up to 3) that are fewer, larger, and longer than in Sonneratia; abundant axial paratracheal aliform
parenchyma; commonly biseriate, strongly heterogeneous rays with erect and square to procumbent cells with crystals; and non-septate fibers.
