On the contrary, the Papeda have small flowers with free separate stamens, large winged petioles, that can be very big, reaching even larger dimensions than those of the same lamina; the fruit is inedible due to the high content of bitter oil in its flesh. In 1926, almost at the same time as Swingle’s studies, Marcovitch published his classification which divided the Citrus into three groups, Aurantium, Intermedium and Medica, and 20 species. From 1915 to 1961, Tyozaburo Tanaka supplied a considerable contribution to the classification of the Aurantioideae and published a series of information-packed papers on the taxonomy entitled ‘Revisio aurantiacearum’.
