  • See above for labeling shifts.

  • * Two pistils were formed without altering the stamen number.

  • These extra stamens were produced around normal pistil without staminoid characteristics.

  • Staminoid pistil was produced instead of or in the vicinity of the normal pistil. Extra stamens were frequently produced.

  • § The pistil was completely transformed to stamens.
