(2010) verified a greater variation in five groups: globular, cordiform
, cylindrical, periform and slightly flattened fruits.

projection (1507)." Veltman (1986).
4 cm diam., assimetric; sepals green, deltoid to ovate or ovate to oblong, abaxial surface glabrous, 5-11 X 3-6 mm; petals yellow with ribs orange, two external, obovate to orbicular, 11-19 X 9-12 mm, two internal, obelliptic, 15-18 X 8-11 mm, cuculus cordiform
to orbicular, 14-19 X 14.5-16 mm; stamens yellow, 5-13 mm long; staminoids, 2-5 mm long; ovary yellow, strigose, 8-12 mm long; style light yellow, 8-12 mm long.
The apex is acute to acuminate, the base is cordiform
and the margin complete.
morphology of the shell of NHMUK R8699 is shared with Thalassemys hugii, and differs from that of the other taxa.
, broadly ovate, slightly emarginate posteriorly.Slight web between base of fingers; fingers slender, slightly flat; tips round, III greater than I greater than II greater than IV; inner palmer tubercles distinct, longer than wide at the base of I finger, outer longer than wide at the base of IV finger.
Known as cordiform
(heart-shaped leaves), examples can be seen in ivies, hostas, lime trees, birch and even many individual flower petals, from roses to buttercups.
These same upper ferns also release narrow stalks;decorated with cordiform
leaves, these stalks reach further up therelief towards yet other monsters.
Sternite V small, cordiform
, with short, sharply tapering posterior lobes.
The number of globular, cordiform
, torpedo and cotiledonary embryos was recorded.
Stigma ventral, ovate-triangular to cordiform
, flat, covered by a viscous secretion, its lower margin somewhat bilobed and prominent, 2.3-2.5 mm long, 1.5-1.8 mm wide; rostellum triangular, rounded, after removal of the pollinarium the rostellum remnant laminar, triangular-ovate, three-toothed, middle tooth narrowly triangular, lateral teeth about one-third the length of the middle tooth.
