Stamens 10, the filaments not dilated basally, straight, smooth; anther dehiscing by slits widening considerably apically, inverting some time before anthesis, appendages long, strongly papillate, paired, at anther-filament junction, surface papillate, endothecium present, pollen monadinous.
Stamens (8-)l0, included, the filaments [+ or -] strongly dilated basally, [+ or -] straight, unicellular-pubescent or smooth; anthers tetrasporangiate, inverting only just before anthesis, slightly roughened, with a pair of dorso-apical spurs, lacking a fibrous endothecium, lacking disintegration tissue, dehiscing by terminal pores or slitlike pores.
Stamens (8-)10, included, the filaments [+ or -] straight, unicellular-pubescent or smooth; anthers inverting early in development, roughened, with a pair of dorso-apical spurs at (or just above) junction with filament, lacking a fibrous endothecium, with or without a white deposit of disintegration tissue dorsally, dehiscing by terminal, slitlike pores.
Stamens 2-15, included or sometimes exserted, the filaments straight to curved or S-shaped, distinct or connate, unicellular-pubescent or glabrous (and smooth); anthers tetrasporangiate, inverting early in development, variably roughened or smooth, with or without a pair of dorsal appendages (spurs), lacking disintegration tissue, usually lacking a fibrous endothecium, dehiscing by terminal pores or longitudinal slits.

The opening mechanism of longitudinally dehiscing anthers.
This prevents the husk from dehiscing properly and may interfere with nut harvest and dispersal by vertebrates.
Androecium: stamens 4-5(-12), isomerous, alternipetalous, sometimes strongly zygomorphic and adnate to corolla tube or mouth, rarely some staminodal or even obsolete (Hoppea): anthers tetrasporangiate, usually introrse (extrorse in Gentiana) and dithecal; dehiscing via a longitudinal slit or rarely by terminal pores (Exacum); occasionally connate (Voyria); occasionally connective with one to two apical glands (Sebaea); rarely with long thread-like projections (Urogentias).
Androecium: stamens isomerous, alternipetalous and adnate to corolla-tube; anthers tetrasporangiate and dithecal, dehiscing via longitudinal slits; connective forming a small apical point.
Androecium: stamens [1 (Usteria)-]4-5(-16), isomerous, alternipetalous, adnate to corolla: anthers bisporangiate or tetrasporangiate, dithecal and introrse; dehiscing via longitudinal slits; usually isostylous, occasionally heterostylous (Gelsemieae); usually free, rarely connivent (Gardneria).
Androecium: stamens (2-) 7-12 (-30) (6-30 in Theligonum), usually isomerous, alternipetalous, adnate to corolla tube or corolla mouth: filaments rarely connate (Neurocalyx) or strongly unequal: anthers tetrasporangiate, dithecal, dehiscing via longitudinal slits or rarely by pores (Argostemma); rarely connivent (Argostemma); sometimes connective produced apically.
