Anatomy and morphology of the articulation between ovary and pedicel in Pleurothallidinae (Orchidaceae)

Anatomy and morphology of the articulation between ovary and pedicel in Pleurothallidinae (Orchidaceae)

Lindleyana 8(4): 189-192

Flowers of 8 species representing 6 genera of the Pleurothallidinae (Masdevallia, Restrepia, Myoxanthus Restrepiella, Trisetella and Porroglossum) were examined using light microscopy and SEM. At the point of articulation, the pedicel flared to accommodate the base of the ovary. The articulation was associated with an abscission zone composed of a layer of small, isodiametric or elongated specialized cells.
