      Structure and development of stomata have been studied in 14 genera and 22 species of the Acanthaceae. The leaves ofNeuracanthus sphaerostachys are hypostomatic while those of other species investigated are amphistomatic. The stomata are typically diacytic, monocyclic or incompletely or completely amphicyclic being surrounded by 2,3 or 4 subsidiary cells and mesogenous in development having been formed as a result of three, four or five successive mitotic divisions of the meristemoid. Arrested developments, single guard cells with or without pore, contiguous stomata and aborted guard cells are the common abnormalities noticed.
