Members of the Canellaceae form a monophyletic group, which share several synapomorphies such as monadelphous stamens, parietal placentation, and campylotropous ovules (Salazar, 2006).
Such varying differentiation of different parts of the ovule accounts for the occasional confusion of anatropous and campylotropous ovules.
