Sarcandraxylon sanjosense Pipo, A.Iglesias et Bodnar
Stem has wide, circular and parenchymatous pith. The primary vascular system is formed by one cycle of collateral vascular bundles, with endarch protoxylem. Secondary vascular system developed by a cambial variant resulting in segments of vascular tissue separated by wide interfascicular multiseriate parenchyma rays. Secondary xylem is vesselless without axial parenchyma.
Combination of Sarcandra, a extant Chloranthaceae genus, and wood ending greek; in reference its similarity of stem anatomy.
