The Myrtales is "wood anatomically a fairly closely knit assemblage" with the "high probability of parallel specialization lines in individual families" (van Vliet & Baas, 1984: 794).
Leaf impressions of Cuphea antiqua Britton (Britton, 1892; Berry, 1917, 1939a) from the Miocene or Pliocene of Potosi, Bolivia (Graham, 2010a: 391) could represent Cuphea or Diplusodon in the Lythraceae, or possibly some other member of the Myrtales.
The minimal information provided about Heterocolpites could apply equally to pollen of other lythraceous genera or other families of the Myrtales (cf.
Pollen characters in relation to the delimitation of Myrtales
This is also true for the newly here positioned orders Myrtales
in numerous morphological and anatomical characters
Gunneraceae, formerly often placed with Haloragaceae and Myrtales
, came Out as sister of Myrothamnaceae in a combined morphological and molecular analysis by Drinnan et al.
This work was to begin with volume 5, on Myrtales
, and he himself was to write an account of the wood of Thymelaeaceae, now included in the Malvales (Alverson et al.
Aluminum hyperaccumulators are especially common in the families Proteaceae, Anisophylleaceae, Polygalaceae, Cunoniaceae, Rubiaceae, and several representatives within the Laurales, Malpighiales, Myrtales, Ericales and Aquifoliales sensu APG (1998).
The order Myrtales appears to be sister to the eurosid I clade (Soltis et al.
