Dialypetalanthus fuscescens Kuhlm. (Dialypetalanthaceae): the problematic taxonomic position of an Amazonian endemic






Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden 84(2): 201-223

Dialypetalanthus fuscescens Kuhlm. (Dialypetalanthaceae): the problematic taxonomic position of an Amazonian endemic

The neotropical rain forest tree Dialypetalanthus fuscescens is the only species of the Dialypetalanthaceae. In-depth morphological and anatomical documentation is presented, including newly recorded features such as indeterminate inflorescences, anthers with calcium oxalate packages, silica bodies in the wood, U-shaped placentas and dendritic hairs, and corrections of erroneous literature observations, e.g., on supposed stipular dimorphism.

The area of main leaf tissues (blade and sheath) and stems of A. scoparius and A. fissifolius cultivars during 2 growth stages were determined. The limbo and stem had higher sclerenchyma tissue concentration than the keel and sheath. An increase i...
