Inflorescences terminal or axillary, usually indeterminate and often racemose, with variously developed bracts and usually a pair of bracteoles, these sometimes recaulescent, replacing calyx lobes; flowers pend ulous to erectly held, articulated with pedicel or not.
Adaptive pressures must usually prevent establishment of a terminal-flower gene in racemose taxa.
A capitulum is usually defined as an indeterminate inflorescence that matures in an acropetal, centripetal, or racemose (Cronquist, 1977) fashion where all of the flowers or florets are sessile and are attached to a receptacle that may be wide and flattened, elongated, convex, concave, or somewhere in between.
The LFY/FLO homologs are essential for normal development in plants with cymose inflorescences (the sympodial growth of the Solonaceae) and racemose inflorescences (simple and compound).
This fossil was reported to have racemose inflorescence fragments, spikelets with two glumes that are keeled, two toters (the bracts are presumed to be lemmas and paleas but are not well preserved), and a total of six exserted dorsifixed stamens.
