SEMgraphs of leaf surfaces (upper epidermis) of Anthospermum and Carpacoce. a A. herbaceum (PUFF 781028-3/1). b A. ternatum subsp. ternatum (PUFF 781221-1/1). cA. isaloense (PUFF 800814-3/2). d C. spermacocea subsp. orientalis (PUFF 790909-5/2). - All critical point dried; all x 232 may be up to 9: 1 in certain Anthospermum species. In Carpacoce, upper and lower epidermis cells are ± equally thick. , A. dregei subsp. dregei, 100160 11m), and in Nenax more than 200 11m thick. The lower epidermal cells may be less than 10 11m thick in Anthospermum and Galopina, but are commonly up to ca 30 11m thick or sometimes even thicker (certain Anthospermum, Nenax and Galopina species).
