Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A genus of polypetalous shrubs of the natural order Sterculiaceæ, type of old tribe Keraudrenieæ, now placed in the tribe Lasiopetaleæ, but differing from Lasiopetalum, the type of that tribe, by having the anther-cells dehisce longitudinally instead of opening by pores at the apex, and from other genera by its enlarged colored calyx and kidney-shaped seeds. The genus embraces 7 species, 6 of which are natives of Australia and one of Madagascar. These plants have the general aspect of Lasiopetalum.
