    • Abstract


      Seeds ofBiophytum vizB. helenae, B. intermedium, B. petersianum, B. reinwardtii andB. sensitivum are brownish, small (0·87 to 1·63 mm long), tuberculate and show distinct orientations of ridges and furrows and crystalliferous epidermal cells. On the basis of these characters a key is proposed to delimit the five species ofBiophytum.
