 Myrtales
Polyderm (alternating endodermal and parenchymatous layers laid down by a pericyclic meristem) is known from families like Onagraceae, Lythraceae, Myrtaceae, and probably Penaeaceae and Oliniaceae, at least (Mylius 1913).
Tracheoidal sclereids with spiral wall thickenings that are associated with the vein endings are known from Vochysiaceae, Lythraceae, Combretaceae, Melastomataceae, Alzateaceae and Penaeaceae (Sajo and Rudall 2002); their more general distribution needs to be checked.
Combretaceae may not be very easy to recognise, although like other Myrtales they often have opposite leaves and the bark is often flaking.
