    • Abstract

       

      The details on the floral morphology and development of fruit and seed inHydrocera triflora that escaped the attention of earlier investigators have been highlighted. The flower inHydrocera is interpreted as primitive overImpatiens. ThoughHydrocera resemblesImpatiens closely, it possesses certain distinctive features on the basis of which it is suggested thatHydrocera be treated as a tribe, Hydrocereae or as a sub-family, Hydroceroideae under the family, Balsaminaceae.
