  Myrtales   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Myrtales may be recognised by their often flaky bark; opposite leaves with colleters, at most small stipules and strong intramarginal veins; flowers with petals that are clawed or at least very narrow at the base, a more or less inferior ovary, and a usually nectariferous hypanthium.
Many Myrtales, including some Myrtaceae, have notably narrow petal bases, i.e., they are close to being clawed; the definition and distribution of clawed petals may have to be amended.
Those taxa in which the stamens are straight in bud have short filaments, and the length of the style is correlated in part with the length of the hypanthial tube.

 Aluminium accumulation...
The character is strongly present in nearly all members of the Memecylaceae and in most primitive taxa of the Melastomataceae, while non-accumulating taxa are widespread in the more derived tribes of the Melastomataceae.
The variable distribution of Al accumulation in advanced clades of the latter family is probably associated with the tendency to herbaceousness, although it is unclear whether the more herbaceous representatives have developed more specialized Al-response mechanisms that may exclude high Al levels from the shoot.
It is hypothesized that Al accumulation is symplesiomorphic for Melastomataceae and Memecylaceae, and that the feature characterizes the most primitive families in the Myrtales.

 PBIO 450 Lecture Notes - Rosidae -- Spring 1998
Often the family was placed within the Myrtales (e.g., Engler & Prantl) but as Cronquist (1981) remarked, here the family is "as out of place as a giraffe in a herd of bison" (p.
I look upon the complex in somewhat the same way Cronquist did in 1981, namely the Rhizophorales is nearest the Myrtales, and the basal position of the Combretaceae in that order is strengthened by their general (but not specific) set of shared features with the Rhizophoraceae.
By keeping the anisophylls in the Rhizophorales, as I have done, I attempt to express the view that the diversity found among the several families of the Myrtales is equalled by that of the Rhizophorales where there are only two families.
