Rock thryptomene Thryptomene saxicola, photographed by Brian Walters.


Belongs within: Myrtaceae.
Contains: Verticordia.

The Chamelaucieae are a group of mostly smooth-leaved plants bearing dry fruits.

Characters (from Wilson et al. 2005): Shrubs, mostly glabrous. Leaves opposite, less commonly spiral. Inflorescences mostly of solitary flowers but sometimes forming corymb-like confloresences; stamens usually few, mostly free but occasionally in clusters opposite the sepals, staminodes present in a few genera; anthers usually adnate, rarely versatile, dehiscing by slits or pores. Ovary inferior 1- to 3-locular; ovules anatropous or hemitropous. Fruit a capsule, or indehiscent; seeds reniform or ovoid to linear; embryo with very small cotyledons on a slender neck appressed to a relatively massive hypocotyl.
