Abstract
Styloid crystals are reported in the leaves of the New Zealand species Libertia cranwelliae, L. edgariae, L. grandiflora, L. ixioides, L. micrantha, L. mooreae, L. peregrinans, the Australian species L. paniculata and L. pulchella, and the South American species L. chilensis and L. sessiliflora. Styloid crystals appear to be absent from rhizomes examined in this study, except those of L. micrantha. The presence of styloids in L. micrantha and L. pulchella supports the retention of these species in Libertia rather than Sisyrinchium.
