Compared with female gametophytes (cystocarpic thalli) (29.4 [+ or -] 2.9%, n = 14), the tetrasporophytes (tetrasporic
thalli) are usually less abundant (24.5 [+ or -] 3.4%, n = 14); the predominance of gametophytes in C.
In contrast, the absence of callose in the cell walls of MMCs is a consistent phenomenon in tetrasporic
(sexual) species (Rodkiewicz, 1970) and in all diplosporous species studied to date, which includes E.
Callose deposits are absent in (i) MMC walls of angiosperms that undergo a megasporogenesis of the tetrasporic
(meiotic karyokineses but not cytokineses) form (Rodkiewicz, 1970), which, if consistent across all tetrasporic
species, would involve about 95 genera (Johri et al., 1992), and (ii) pollen mother cells (PMCs) of monosporic Pergularia L.
