These latter were classified according to whether the parts of the flower were hypogenous, perigynous, or epigynous.
In Umbelliferæ the epigynous condition is changed for the perigynous, &c.
epigynous, borne apparently on the top of the ovary; all which is explained in Fig. 270-274.
epigynous (on the ovary) when so adnate that all these parts appear to arise from the very summit of the ovary, as in Fig. 274.
Stylopodium, an epigynous disk, or an enlargement at the base of the style.
Having floral parts (such as the petals and stamens) attached to or near the upper part of the ovary, as in the flower of the apple, cucumber, or daffodil. Compare hypogynous, perigynous.
