T.S. : Seed coat single, four cells deep; thin cell walls throughout. Top layer, one cell deep, radially more narrow than central layers, contains a few doughnut-shaped organelles which may be denatured starch grains or amyloplasts. Further contents are highly bi-refringent smaller granules. The upper layer within two-layered central band is the radially widest. Tangential width of individual cells varies between minimum and maximum of that of other strata. Densely filled with large, doughnut-shaped cells ranging from 3 - 17 um in diameter. Frequently batteries of the smaller sizes are aligned parallel to it's i. pericl. wall. Lower layer in central band retains no content with the embedding techniques used; it is radially more narrow than layer above and the irregular ·placing of rad. walls suggests an intrusive arrangement of cells. The deepest layer of the coat is radially the most narrow, of even width, rad. walls not detectable. This layer contains at frequent intervals brown contents; among these some bi-refringent granules and small, doughnutshaped organelles. Infrequently content of organelies polarizes brightly; then 'framing' doughnut glistens softly. Cuticle subtending coat is narrow.
