The morphology and anatomy of the African monospecific genus Colletoecema E. Petit (Rubiaceae) is documented and illustrated (including wood anatomy, pollen morphology, gynoecial and exotestal structure). Morphological and anatomical comparison shows that Colletoecema differs in many aspects from the Psychotrieae (e.g., wood anatomy, seed structure). Consequently, the genus' provisional position in the Psychotrieae cannot be maintained. Morindeae, the second tribe Colletoecema has been… CONTINUE READING
