  Flowering Plant Families, UH Botany
The Lythraceae are mostly tropical herbs or occasionally shrubs or trees comprising about 24 genera and 500 species.
The leaves are simple, usually opposite or whorled; stipules are minute or absent.
Note crumpled petals and the exceptional condition of numerous stamens.

(Lythraceae) occurring on hydromorphic soils on the edge of Panga's river gallery forest, in The Panga Ecological Station, Uberlândia-MG, were studied for many aspects of their floral and reproductive biology and their 2importance for the species of hummingbird identified in the area.
Observations were carried out during over the flowering season of 1999 with periodic visits during the morning period and sometimes until the beginning of the afternoon.

 Lythraceae in Flora of China @ efloras.org
From the morphological standpoint, the Lythraceae sensu lato (including Trapaceae) have a very generalized morphology, without a single unique, defining character, i.e., there is no morphological synapomorphy that defines the family.
Several other features ally these genera to the Lythraceae sensu stricto, including opposite and simple leaves, commonly held wood anatomical characters (true for the Myrtales generally), development of a persistent floral tube, valvate sepals, 4- or 6-merous flowers, introrse and versatile anthers, axile placentation, and seeds without endosperm.
Of the four genera, Trapa is the most divergent, but still sufficiently similar to the Lythraceae and Onagraceae to have been considered for membership within either family, or as a closely related family (as has been done in the present Flora).

The distribution of fatty acids is given for genera of Lythraceae, with emphasis on Cuphea (supposedly more advanced) and Diplusodon.
Compounds with saturated short chains represent a derived condition in Lythraceae although they are probably restricted to Cuphea.
The condition of advanced or primitive chemical patterns is inferred from the results of cladistic analyses based on morphological characters (Eriocaulaceae and Lythraceae), and morphological and molecular characters (Velloziaceae).

 Myrtales   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In Myrtaceae the calyx and corolla originate at about the same time, while in Lythraceae and Onagraceae the calyx is visible considerably before the corolla (Mayr 1969); it will be interesting to know the general distribution of this feature.
Onagraceae + Lythraceae: tannins often not abundant, soluble oxalate accumulating; vessels in groups in the wood; fibers with at most minutely bordered pits; petiole bundle arcuate; inflorescence racemose; (flowers vertically monosymmetric), C clawed, (pollen at anthesis with starch), several megasporocytes; fibrous exotegmen +; starch grains in nucellus; n = 7.
Lythraceae are herbs to trees that are recognisable by their flaky bark, opposite leaves that lack gland dots, flowers with a ribbed hypanthium or K + C tube, a rather thick, valvate calyx, clawed petals that are crumpled in bud, and often 10 or more stamens of unequal lengths.
