Could be confused with: Caladrinia ciliata


Montia linearis: MOLI

Seed sample from: 2011

Measurement: 2.2 x 2.2 x 1

Features: Seed lenticular in shape. Hilium scar is white, surrounded by a ring of brown. Seed is dark red to black. Could be confused with: Caladrinia ciliata

Seeds are papillose with some small ridges around the surface edges.

Montia linearis

Basic Explanations and Assumptions:

The dimensions for the seeds are length x width x depth. The location of the hilum is used as the base of the seed, and the length is measured from hilum to the opposite apex. Where a style is present, the length is measured from the hilum to the bottom of the style. Width is measured at a right angle to the length at the widest part. Depth is measured at a right angle to the intersection of height and width lines.

Measurements included are the mean average for each measurement of ten separate seeds.

All measurements in millimeters unless otherwise noted.
