- tubulis antherae thecas subaequantibus (non circa dimidium antherae aequantibus), with the tubules of the anther subequalling the thecas (not around half of the anther equalling).

- embryo juxta hilum parvus, nunc minimus, nunc ex Steetzio dimidium albuminis superans (B&H), the embryo beside the hilum small, somtimes very small, sometimes overtopping, according to Steetzius, half of the albumen.

- carpella matura 4, longitudinaliter dehiscentia, dimidio dorsali a ventrali stylifero valvatim secedente (B&H), mature carpels 4, dehiscing lengthwise, with the dorsal half valvately falling away from the styliferous ventral one.
