Light and scanning electron microscopy were utilised to study stoma and cuticle morphology whereas transmission electron microscopy was used to observe plastid ultrastructure in Ceratozamia kuesteriana Regel (Zamiaceae).

Results show that in C. kuesteriana a diperigenous‐type stoma (or a derivation of a diperigenous type) occurs and that protein crystalloids and prolamellar bodies are simultaneously present in the chloroplast.
