If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.

D. Pons 1983Diffused-pore heteroolecular wood; Pores isolated (38%) or grouped by 2-5 (8) in radial rows, very small to small, 20-120 μm tangential diameter (average = 60-80 µm), numbering 9 to 23 pores per mm2; walls
Thick 4-6 µm; Vessels of 60 to 350 µm long; Single perforations; Small, hexagonal, areola and alternate intervessel pits, 4-6 μm in diameter; Colored deposits.
A highly developed circumvascular parenchyma in lateral wings that can anastomose with each other to form strips alternating with strips of fibrous tissue; 1-2 cell parenchymal files; Parenchyma ligneous 1-2 cell seated, fairly regularly present; Long rows of crystals of calcium oxalate (16-20 crystals).
Homogeneous rays, 1-2 (3) -serial (8-24 µm), high from 1 to 24 cells (mean = <15 cells) or 12-320 µm (average <200 µm) and 9 to 12 per mm; Not staged.
Sizniplicated fibers 6-12 μm in diameter and very thin
