Cycnia re-appears, it is in fruit, the cotyledons are not conduplicate.
Tagetes, _Sud Buruk_, is a curious genus, on account of its simple tubular involucrum, very entire and pappus florets, conduplicate in aestivation, all florets faeminine are ligulate; are the folded up ones representations of the males?
In a species of _Triumfetta_ (see p. 260), of which I examined dried specimens, the ovary was open and partly foliaceous; it bore on its infolded margins ten erect leaflets, representing so many ovules; each leaflet was conduplicate, the back being turned towards the placenta.
Another filament bore just above the usual joint three leaflets, two lateral ones, somewhat conduplicate, and a third central one, half anther, half leaflet.
The wild plant has fleshy, shining, waved and lobed leaves (the uppermost being undivided but toothed), large yellow flowers, elongated seed-pod, and seeds with conduplicate cotyledons.
When the leaves are conduplicate the shoots are more or less compressed.
The leaves are said to be = conduplicate = in this case.
When the fides of a leaf converge in parallel lines, fo that the inner leaves are inclofed by the outer ones; which is not the cafe in conduplicate leaves. —
