    • Abstract


      Structure of the trichomes occurring on floral parts is described in eighteen species ofCrotalaria. On the basis of structure they are classified into 9 types of which ontogeny of four types has been studied. Organographic distribution of each type is given. The four hair types of which ontogeny was studied, all develop from a single initial cell. Most of the hairs can be used for specific delineation although they show less variations. A key for the identification of the species on the basis of the trichomes studied is given.
