TitleRevision of Magodendron (Sapotaceae) with observations on floral development and morphology
JournalBlumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants
AbstractThe genus Magodendron Vink is revised. A second species, M. mennyae, is described. In the developing flower the staminodes are initiated when the stamens are already distinctly differentiated into filament and anther. The probability of movements of the staminodes during anthesis is discussed. In the youngest stages observed the pistil is a single, apically open locule; the sept primordia on its wall are free from the pistil base. The septs grow towards the centre of the pistil. The concrescence of the septs is imperfect, resulting in open connections between the ovarial locules and towards the stigma.
