The characteristics of a typical Scrophularia include; asymmetrical mostly tubular flowers, ovaries with axile placentation and numerous ovules, capsular fruits, and seeds with endosperm, each are shared with one or several related families [3].
A distinguishing morphological feature of Pittosporaceae is the presence of superior ovaries with parietal or axile placentation, whereas the other three families of Apiineae have inferior ovaries with an apical placentation.
6-2 mm long, 6-12 mm apart, with a tuft of white scales in the axile.
Fruits are 5-8 locular with axile placentation and bear one seed per locule.
5 mm, with 12-15 rows of seeds per locule attached to an axile placenta.
The ovary is bilocular with single ovule per locule and the placentation is axile.
Ovary 5-locular, with axile placentation and many ovules per locule, superior; style impressed, short to quite long; stigma usually peltate, sometimes also lobed.
The fossil and living taxa share the following characters: persistent floral tube, valvate sepals (unknown in Minsterocarpum), superior ovary, axile placentation, capsular fruit, loculicidal dehiscence (unknown in fossil Decodon), septum attached to outer wall of the valve at dehiscence, multiple anatropous seeds per locule, and a t obtrigonal shaped seed body with a sclerotic inner lining of the seed coat.
have axile placentation, as is characteristic of nearly all Miconieae (Renner, 1993; Judd et al.
Ovary mostly apocarpous, superior to subinferior; placentation marginal when ovary apocarpous, parietal or axile when syncarpous, upper part of carpels fusing postgenitally to form complex style head that produces adhesive for pollen transport, with pollen-trapping basal collar and/or pollen-presenting upper crest present in many Rauvolfioideae and Apocynoideae; stigma mostly on underside of style head, often restricted to five chambers behind guide rails, but laterally uniformly receptive in some Rauvolfioideae.
