Evidence for a phylogenetic link between the two androecial configurations, running only in one direction, relies essentially on staminodial structures (see Ronse Decraene & Smets, 1995a).

Androecial initiation is unidirectional, with a delayed initiation of the adaxial staminode, which may not arise at all in some cases (e.
In Couroupita guianensis the abaxial part of the androecial ring primordium is detached as a broad flap of tissue with numerous staminodes covering the fertile stamens like a hood.
