Abstract

All the species have paracytic stomata. The stomatal indices, frequencies and sizes have been determined.  Atylosia albicans Benth. and A. lineata Wight & Arn. can be identified by hypostomatic leaves and A. volubilis Gamble, A. platycarpa Benth., A. scarabaeoides Benth. with their bulbous glandular hairs.
