Abstract: The micromorphological characters of seed coats that 9 species of Lepidium from China was examined by scanning electron microscope. The results showed that in micromorphological characters may be delimitated four types and Lepidium is delimitated three sections. But L. virginicum L. is obviously different from others of Lepidium in micromorphological characters of seed coats. Again, through the characters of accumbent, L. virginicum L. should be built a new section——Sect. Accumbentum F. Z. Li, J. Q. Zheng & Z. Y. Sun, sect. nov.

Key words: Lepidium, seed coats, micromorphological character
