Families

The Crossosomatales are an order, newly recognized by the APG II, of flowering plants, included within the Rosids, which are part of the eudicots.

Description[edit]

The species assigned to the Crossosomatales have in common that the flowers are positioned solitary, with the base of the calyx, corolla, and stamens fused into a tube-shaped floral cup, the sepals overlapping, with the outermost smaller than inner ones. The inside of the casings of the pollen grains have horizontally extended thin regions (or endo-apertures). The gynoecium is placed on a short stalk, the papillae on the stigma consist of two or more cells, the ovary locules taper upwards, and the protective cell layer (or integument) surrounding the ovule leaves a zigzag opening (or micropyle). Some cell clusters have bundles of long yellow crystals, mucilage cells are present, and seeds have a smooth, woody seed skin.[2]

Taxonomy[edit]

The relationships between the orders is the Malvid clade according to the APG system is represented by the following tree.[3]
