    • Abstract


      A comparative study on the veinlet endings in 118 taxa ofHibbertia has been made. The vein-endings have been classified into three categories, namely conventional tracheids, tracheoids and sclereids. Typological features of the tracheoids and sclereids are found to be of exceptional interest in the provisional confirmation of a few taxa and also for understanding the taxonomy of this genus.
