hemi, para irregular undulate adaxial hemi, para irregular curved T.
5-11 cm, cuneate to rounded at base, acute to acuminate at apex, 4-6 pairs lateral veins, prominulous, distinguishable tertiary veins, adaxial surface glabrous, abaxial
surface glabrous throughout.
Souza e Oliveira (2004) tambem encontraram estomatos somente na face abaxial
nas especies de Tabebuia avellanedae e T.
Tetracytic stomata were observed on both adaxial and abaxial
surfaces in hybrid and native plants but were more frequent on the adaxial epidermis.
cuticles are comparatively very thin and delicate, and much less cutinized.
Leaves 1-2 m long, rachis scales thin, flat, loosely spreading to appressed; abaxial
surfaces of rachises and costae without hairs; South Pacific Islands, Central and South America 2.
The presence of abaxial
epidermal mamilliform papillae on the fossil leaves suggested a relationship to Duabanga (Keating, 1984), whereas the absence of leaf sclereids, diagnostic in the Lythraceae only of Duabanga and Sonneratia leaves (Bannerjee & Rao, 1975; Rao & Das, 1979), mies against it.
In all the treatments, the numbers of Coccidae and Pseudococcidae observed on the abaxial
face on apical leaves were higher than the numbers observed on plants in the medium and basal heights of the canopy (Table 2).
5 mm, free, entire, pale green, finely nerved, thin in texture, inconspicuously white-lepidote along the central-distal portion to glabrous, the adaxial ones carinate with keels decurrent on the ovary, the abaxial
one obtusely if at all carinate; petals spathulate, apex rounded and remotely apiculate, ca.
Por outro lado, Lei e Liang (1999) e Tucker (1980) consideram o gineceu de Peperomia monocarpelar, com base em estudos de desenvolvimento; o aspecto bilobado do estigma não é evidência de gineceu bicarpelar, já que é explicado como lobos adaxial e abaxial
de uma estrutura ascidial.
Microscopic analysis of the abaxial
leaf surface cuticular feature data from the three plant populations revealed that stomatal frequency and trichome length were inconsistent.
5 mm long, 3-5-celled, spreading, the scales like those on the abaxial
surfaces; basal basiscopic pinnules of medial pinnae not enlarged or overlapping the lamina rachis; costules abaxially eglandular, pubescent, scaly, the hairs 0.
