- stamina in phalanges 5, omnes 2-oo-antheras v. (in sp. 3-gynis) 2 1- antheras, et 3 2-4-antheras coalita, additis interdum staminibus 5 liberis intra phalanges.— Australia. (B&H), the stamens fused into 5 bundles [i.e. groups], [the groups] all 2-[numerous]-anthered or (in trigynous species) 2 1-anthered, and 3 2-4-anthered, sometimes 5 free [i.e. unfused] stamens are added among the phalanges.

- staminum phalanges 5, disco subnullo, singulae in filamenta [oo infinity sign] supra medium extrorsum antherifera divisae (B&H), the bundles [i.e. phalanges] of the stamens 5, with the disc nearly absent, the individuals divided into filaments above the middle externally anther-bearing.

- anthera media cujusve phalangis bilocularis, laterales uniloculares (B&H), the middle anther of which bundle is bilocular, the laterals with one loculus.

- stamina 6, in phalanges 2 petalis exterioribus oppositas alte coalita (B&H), stamens 6, in bundles 2, high coalesced [i.e. united] opposite to the exterior petals..

- squamae v. glándulae hypogynae inter staminum phalanges saepe adsunt.(B&H),the scales or hyopgynous glandules among the bundles of stamens often absent.

- stamina pauciora quam 10, libera v. in phalanges 3 triandras connata (B&H), stamens fewer than 10, free or connate in 3 [triandrous] bundles.

- staminum phalanges 5, in tubum apice 5-dentatum v. breviter 5-fidum coalita (B&H), the bundles of stamend 5, united at the apex into a 5-dentate or shortly 5-fid tube.

- filamenta saepe crassa v. brevia, libera v. varie connata, nunc in massam carnosam conferruminata v. in phalanges tot quot petala et iis oppositas connata (B&H), the filaments often thick or short, free or variously fused, sometimes fused together into a fleshy mass or connate into phalanges as many as the petals and opposite these.

- cupula staminea a Cavanillesio truncata delineata staminibus 20 uniseriatis; a Jacquinio in phalanges 5 5-6-andras divisa dicitur (B&H), the stamineal cup truncate, delineated by Cavanillesius with 20 uniseriate stamens; it is said by Jacquinius to be divided into 5 5-6-stamened phalanges [i.e. stamen-bundles].

- staminum phalanges 5, singulae in antheras 8-10 lineares distinctas divisae (B&H), the bundles of the stamens 5, each bundle divided into 8-10 distinct linear anthers.

- stamina in massam integram v. 4-lobam v. in phalanges 4 coalita v. fere libera, the stamens fused into an undivided or 4-lobed mass or fused into four bundles or nearly free.
