    • Abstract


      Foliar epidermis of nineteen species of Amaryllidaceae, has been studied. Epidermal cells on both the surfaces are polygonal with oblique or straight anticlinal walls in all species except inHaemanthus andEucharis where these have sinuous or undulate walls. Subsidiaries are indistinct and are of C-type. With the exception ofEucharis (hypostomatic) leaves are amphistomatic in all the species. The stomata are anomocytic. Various types of stomatal abnormalitiesviz contiguous stomata, interstomatal cytoplasmic connections etc., are observed in the different species.
