Abstract

Guara coccines, a member of the evening primrose family, is suitable for a study of epigyny in that the flower has a long promethium with the sepals, petals, and stamens are discreate, and the sepals are fused to each other along their margins, but not to other floral parts. Furthermore Gaura coccinea ranges from Manitona to Texas and west to Alberta and California, and has not attracted the attention of floral morphologists. The purpose of this research is two-fold: first to discover the plan of organogeny, and second to discover the nature of the inferior ovary and therefore epigyny in this species.
