We present new comparative morphological and ontogenetic data on flowers and bulbils of Globba (Zingiberaceae) to clarify their homologies. Globba flowers are characteristically Zingiberaceous, possessing a single stamen and epigynous (``supragynopleural'') nectaries, but are unusual as the anther bears triangular lateral outgrowths and the style is held tightly in position across the curvature of the filament like a bowstring. Floral ontogeny in Globba is similar to other Zingiberaceae… CONTINUE READING
