(1980), PARRA & al.(1984) it is possible to evidence some morphological particularities typical of the seedling cotyledons of a few families or genera that may be useful for identifying taxa such as Bignoniaceae, Bombacaceae, Boraginaceae (Cordia), Burseraceae, Convolvulaceae, Hernandiaceae (Gyrocarpus & Sparattanthelium), Lecythidaceae (Gustavia), Mimosaceae, Vochysiaceae (Vochysia), Ulmaceae (Celtis) and Vitaceae (Cissus).
