Thanks for your input. Your effort is highly appreciated.
Here are some comments:
(d): the ligulate flower for Chrysanthemum frutescens is female. No male part. (reference: http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=106957)
(e) Are you sure ovary is included? The compositae members have inferior ovary. Have you dissected open to see the ovary?
Thanks for your edition :)
