Comment
Cyme inflorescence is used here to treat inflorescences that are commonly referred to as dichasial, pleiochasial, or polychasial cymes; each of which are named according to the number of higher order inflorescence axes at a single axis. Cyme is not used here to treat monochasial cymose inflorescences, which contain at least one repeating sympodial unit, such as cincinnus inflorescence (PO:0030132), compound cincinnus inflorescence (PO:0030133), bostryx (PO:0030134), rhipidium inflorescence (PO:0030131), drepanium inflorescence (PO:0030135), and compound drepanium inflorescence (PO:0030136). Examples include many species of the Figwort family (Scrophulariaceae, including green figwort Scrophularia umbrosa) and the Verbena family (Verbenaceae).
