These tendencies include: corolline corona often present, anthers sometimes with conspicuous sterile apical (sometimes also basal) appendages, ovary often syncarpous to varying degrees, and pollen sometimes porate and sometimes in tetrads.
For the Periplocoideae he described the swollen region below the filaments as the "basal tube" and interpreted it as corolline or receptacular (Kunze 1990: 38).
We shall term this ridge the "staminal foot," although we have found that, at the base of the stamen, it is impossible to differentiate clearly between tissues derived from the stamen and those that are corolline in origin.
Kunze (1990) demonstrated clearly that these emergences are of corolline origin.
In Ectadium and Stomatostemma the corona has been left at the base of the petals, it is obscurely bifid (or bifid in its early stages), and there is no corona at the apex of the foot; in Cryptolepis this robust lobule arises more or less in the middle of the tube at the apex of the foot but some distance below the small pairs of corolline corona lobules.
According to the position of these structures, they distinguished four kinds of corona: corolline (Cc), staminal (Cs), interstaminal (Ci), and annular (Ca).
Liede and Kunze stated that "judged from topographic as well as ontogenetic properties," Ca is a "second element within the corolline corona type" (Liede & Kunze 1993: 277), It would then have been more logical to have baptized Cc and Ca as Cc1 and Cc2.
In his study, however, he included only one type of corolline corona for the Apocynaceae s.
In the mature flower in this region one cannot easily distinguish between what is of staminal and what is of corolline origin, due to elongation after initiation.
More than one type of corolline corona may be present in a particular taxon.
