Asclepiadospermum marginatum C.Del Rio, T.Su et Z.K.Zhou in Del Rio, Wang, Liu, Liang, Spicer, Wu, Zhou & Su
Seed elliptical or pear-shaped, tapering rapidly toward a blunt to slightly round apex, and rounded at the base; an oval to elliptical central part surrounded by a margin; a straight median line corresponding to the trace left by the raphe runs from the apex to the center of the seed (Fig. 2: 5; Fig. 3: 2). Cells polygonal and irregularly arranged, but often arranged in rows at the margin (Fig. 2: 6, 7; Fig. 3: 4).
Asclepiadospermum refers to the affinity of the seeds with the subfamily Asclepiadoideae.
