Central Siberian Botanical Garden of SB RAS, 630090 Novosibirsk, Russia
Using the section Recurvata (Knuth) Novosselova as an example, this article discusses specific features of morphological traits of the mericarp surface in species of the genus Geranium L. and application of these traits to the taxonomy of the genus. It is shown that the traits of the mericarp surface are distinguishing features of subsections and species. The distinguishing features at the subsection level include the presence or absence of crinkles on the mericarp as well as its size. The distinguishing feature at the species level is the type of mericarp pubescence.
