We report on the cuticular features of a number of Lauraceae species belonging to the genera Aspidostemon, Beilschmiedia, Cryptocarya and Potameia, all from Madagascar. The goal of this project was to ascertain if cuticular features could be used to determine the generic placement of a poorly known species previously placed in Cryptocarya and Aspidostemon and of several specimens which combine characters of Potameia and Beilschmiedia. We conclude that cuticular features define groups of species or genera of Lauraceae and that these characters are a promising tool in solving the generic placement of poorly known species or specimens which possess characters typical of more than one genus.
