Petal spots have evolved in a phylogenetically broad range of species and function as a pollinator attractant. They develop through the accumulation of pigment in the pavement cells of the petal epidermis and in a small number of species, including Gorteria diffusa, also contain elaborated epidermal cell morphologies. Identifying the genes encoding the regulators of petal spot morphology will allow us to formulate a model for the pathway of petal spot development, ultimately defining the molecular events that have led to the evolution of this floral feature.
