Kunze (1990) has demonstrated that the corona in Periplocoideae is corolline in origin.
In the Ceropegieae, scalelike corolline coronas are known in Leptadenia, and some very unusual ones are found in Pentasachme (Bruyns & Forster, 1991: figs.
Corolline corona usually present; lianas without tendrils Melodineae 5.
Leaves opposite; calycine colleters present or absent; corolla salveriform; corolline corona absent; corolla-lobe aestivation almost always sinistrorse; apical connective appendages of anthers often scarcely developed; style head usually with stigmatic region beneath basal collar, sometimes body uniformly receptive; ovary congenitally syncarpous; disc mostly adnate or indistinct from ovary.
Galycine colleters usually absent; corolla salveriform; corolla-lobe aestivation sinistrorse; small corolline corona often present in petal sinuses (well developed and often annular in Melodinus); anther connective with a apical extension in Diplorhynchus and Dyera and with both apical connective extension and small sterile basal lobes in Pycnobotrya; style head mostly without basal collar or upper wreath; disc usually absent; ovary apocarpous or syncarpous, sometimes only at base (Diplorhynchus), more than half inferior in Dyera.
Calycine colleters absent or present; corolla salveriform or funnelform; corolla-lobe aestivation sinistrorse; corolline corona often present below the petal sinuses behind stamen (usually much dissected in Allamanda) and infrastaminal appendages generally present; anther connective often broadened and with elongate apical extension; style head mostly with basal collar or lobes (no distinct basal collar in Plumeria, Himatanthus, or Mortoniella), mostly without upper wreath (well-developed upper wreath present in Allamanda) but often with free apices conspicuously enlarged; ovary apocarpous or syncarpous at the very base (postgenitally syncarpous in Allamanda), hemiinferior in Plumeria, Himalatanthus, and Mortoniellar; disc absent or present.
Corolla rotate to tube rarely longer than lobes; lobes usually spreading, with valvate to dextrorsely imbricate aestivation; corolline corona usually present in sinuses of petals as pair of lobules or single filiform to clavate lobule (usually faintly bifid), often much reduced to rounded bumps or absent (Baroniella, Baseonema, Pentanura).
Corolla rotate to campanulate or urceolate; lobes mostly with dextrorsely contorted or valvate aestivation (but sinistrorsely contorted in Genianthus); corolline corona consisting of 5 fleshy ridges radiating out along inner surface of corolla lobes close to and nearly parallel to margins and meeting in sinuses where they sometimes form pouch.
Corolla rotate to tubular; lobes valvate to imbricate; corolline corona rare in sinuses of lobes (except in some Ceropegieae and Gonolobinae, where present as annulus).
Corolla rotate to urceolate; lobes with valvate to dextrorsely imbricate aestivation; corolline corona rare (e.
Ceropegia, Echidnopsis, Stapeliopsis), often fleshy, frequently with fleshy annulus around mouth of tube, often ornamented with papillae, hairs, or cilia; lobes with valvate aestivation, sometimes remaining fused at apices; corolline corona rarely present in sinuses of corolla lobes (Leptadenia).
