Dombeya is a genus of approximately 200 species of flowering plant in the Sterculiaceae family. [more]
Melhania is a genus of flowering plant in the Sterculiaceae family. It contains the following species: [more]
Nesogordonia is a flowering plant genus. Traditionally included in the family Sterculiaceae, it is included in the expanded Malvaceae in the APG and most subsequent systematics. In that clade, it belongs to the subfamily Dombeyoideae. Nesogordonia is among the oldest living genera of its subfamily, if not the most ancestral one. [more]
Small trees or shrubs. Leaves alternate, serrulate; stipule filiform, caducous. Inflorescence axillary, fascicled, sometimes umbel-like; pedicels articulate; epicalyx lobes 2 or 3, verticillate, near joint. Calyx 5-partite nearly to base; sepals valvate, glabrous. Petals yellow, broadly ovate, unequal, persistent, apex truncate. Stamens 15, in 5 groups of 3, alternating with 5 tongue-shaped staminodes; filaments connate at base into short tube; anthers ovate or elliptic. Ovary sessile, 2-5-loculed, stellate puberulent, cells easily dehiscent; ovules 2 per locule; style elongate, slightly swollen upward, usually 4-5-grooved. Fruit a capsule, nearly globose, locules easily freed from each other, stellate puberulent. Seeds 1 per cell, oblong-ovoid, dark brown. [more]
Annual herbs. Leaves alternate; leaf blade simple. Flowers axillary, solitary or paired; epicalyx lobes 3, acute, caducous. Calyx 5-lobed, divided almost to base. Petals 5, red. Stamens 15, in 5 groups of 3 alternating with staminodes, connate at base into tube; staminodes 5, nearly as long as petals; anther 2-celled, extrorse. Ovary sessile, 5-locular; ovules many per locule; style elongated. Capsule ovoid-globose, dehiscent into 5 mericarps. Seeds 8-12 per mericarp, in 2 rows, elliptic, with endosperm; cotyledons 2-divided, plicate. [more]
Pterospermum is a genus of tropical trees and shrubs belonging to the family Sterculiaceae. Some species are grown ornamentally while others are valued for their timber. [more]
Schoutenia is a flowering plant genus. Traditionally included in the family Tiliaceae, it is included in the expanded Malvaceae in the APG and most subsequent systematics. [more]
Trochetia is a genus of flowering plants from the family Malvaceae (formerly in the Sterculiaceae, but this family is now usually subsumed in the Malvaceae). They are endemic to the Mascarene Islands. [more]
At least 18 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Trochetia.
