For example, the study of cuticular characters of some leaves that seemed pteridophytic or pteridospermous actually show an affinity with the Cycadales.
First, the general form of the monocot embryo and its early development are very similar to the form and growth patterns found in a number of pteridophytic embryos (Campbell, 1930; Schaffner, 1934; Burger, 1981; Jacques-Felix, 1982a, 1982b, 1988; Mestre & Guedes, 1983; Vallade et al.
Such a possibility is consistent with the invariance of monocot embryos and their strong similarity to the form and growth pattern of many pteridophytic embryos.
