Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- A group of genera of rubiaceous plants, erected by Humboldt, Bonpland, and Kunth, about the year 1815, having Hedyotis as the type. It was adopted by Bentham and Hooker as the sixth tribe of the order, and by them limited to genera having valvate corolla-lobes, a 2- to 4-celled ovary, the ovules numerous in the cells, and a dry capsular or indehiscent fruit with small or minute seeds. They are chiefly herbs with opposite stipulate leaves.
