Among dicotyledons, Boesewinkel (1989) reported a remarkably similar nucellus type in the insectivorous dicot genera Drosera and Dionaea, but not in other genera of Droseraceae. He correlated this with a dizonate ovule primordium in these taxa (a derived condition from the more usual trizonate one).
