Re: What's a Cataphyll?

Drancontiums produce cataphylls , it is an identifying characteristic for some species .
It was pointed out to me that Dracontium prancei has a large cataphyll protecting the flower . It is usually higher than the base of the flower . It is very short lived and withers away , thus not appearing in Dans photo . You will see a good example in David Scherberichs fantastic photos of Dracontium nivosum , especially the first 2 in the sequence .

Michael Pascall,
