- semina oo, 2-seriatim superposita, horizontalia v. suspensa (B&H), seeds indeterminate, 2-seriately superimposed, horizontal or suspended.

- operculo os capsulae superposito, with the operculum placed over the mouth of the capsule [os = neut. sg.acc.].

- pilis superficiem laminae superpositis, with the hairs placed over the surface of the lamina.

- verrucae magnae, per cellulam singulae, in superficie cellulae abaxiali superpositae, verrucae large, a single one per cell, positioned over the abaxial surface of the cell.

- perianthia auriculis post rostrum superpositis, perianths with auricles behind the beak overlapped.

- ovula solitaria v. 2 superposita, anatropa, adscendentia, raphe ventrali (B&H), ovules solitary or 2 superimposed, anatropous, ascending, with the raphe ventral.
