We estimated natural levels of seed production on six plants in each population at the end of the season by counting the number of fruits produced on a haphazardly-chosen inflorescence on each plant and the number of seeds in six fruits, two near the top, two near the center, and two near the bottom of the inflorescence.
In Cyperaceae the IM: (1) may produce only one terminal spikelet and the inflorescence lacks branches being formed only by one spikelet; (2) may produce spikelet meristems directly on their flanks, creating a "spike-like" structure or a fascicle of spikelets; (3) or it may produce branches.

In Brazil, information on the occurrence of Myxomycetes in inflorescences is scarce and dispersed in the literature (Cavalcanti and Mobin, 2004; Ferreira and Cavalcanti, 2010; Hochgesand and Gottsberger, 1996; Silva and Cavalcanti, 2010), and only Maimoni-Rodella and Cavalcanti (2006) deal specifically with the subject, recording the occurrence of five species in living plants of Hedychium coronarium J.
