Ipomoea teotitlanica McPherson was described from an unique herbarium specimen without fruits and seeds. The environmental conditions of the type locality where Ipomoea teotitlanica is established and the structural features of its flowers, fruits and seeds are described here. The morphology of fruit and seed corresponds to that described for the Arborescentes group: coriaceous sepals, dehiscent fruit and seed with long marginal trichomes.

    Mastichodendron foetidissimum (Jacq.) Cronq. is a tree characterized by heteromorphic seeds, which differ greatly in shape and size as a result of their number (1, 2 or 3) in each fruit. In this paper the correlation between this variability and the germinative response of the seeds was...
