Malvoideae

Flowers of swizzlestick tree Quararibea turbinata, photographed by tropicalgardener1. The common name of this tree refers to the use of aromatic sticks taken from the tree in preparing cocktails.


Belongs within: Malvaceae.
Contains: Sidalcea, Sida, Eumalvoideae.

The Malvoideae as defined here includes the traditional Malvaceae sensu stricto plus some basal taxa that were previously placed in the Bombacaceae. The clade was defined by Baum et al. (1998) as including all taxa closer to Malva sylvestris than Bombax ceiba. Possible members of this clade include the Fremontodendreae, two genera of trees and shrubs found in southern North America with a distinctive quincuncial arrangement of sepals (S. R. Hinsley).

Synapomorphies (from the Angiosperm Phylogeny Website): Petiole bundle annular; median calyx often abaxial, corolla basally connate to free; androecium from 5 antepetalous primordia, centrifugal, tube often with 5 apical teeth; tapetum plasmodial; pollen often spiny, 7+ porate; styles often separate, stigmas decurrent to capitate, hairy; ovules 1-many/carpel, campylotropous (rarely anatropous), outer integument 2-6 cells across, inner integument 4-8(-15) cells across, parietal tissue 2-7 cells across; embryo curved (rarely straight), cotyledons folded; n = 5-20(+).
