(botany)

In contrast, organisational (or organisational plus architectural) monosymmetry often characterizes species-rich families or orders with complex monosymmetric flowers (Fabaceae, Lamiales, Orchidaceae, Zingiberales).
Lamiales are a huge clade in terms of species, genera and families with monosymmetric, often elaborate bilabiate flowers (Kampny, 1995).
The genetic system responsible for monosymmetry in Lamiales was at least partly established much before the origin of Lamiales, at least at the level of basal eudicots (Coen & Nugent, 1994; Cubas et al.
