Abstract Stems of 14 species belonging to 10 genera of the family Chenopodiaceae were examined under scanning electron microscope (SEM). Micro-morphological characters such as sculpture of epicuticular wax, trichomes and surface relief were investigated. These characters were clumped into five groups. These groups do not coincide solely with the five tribes of the species studied. The study presented epicuticular wax sculptures and surface reliefs not previously reported for the family Chenopodiaceae.
