Gunnera manicata L. glands consist of up to nine separate papillae. Surgical removal of papillae showed that more than two papillae were needed for successful infection with Nostoc. Infection occurs only in the enclosed space between adjacent papillae. Dividing Gunnera cells in the enclosed space are the sites of infection.

Keywords: Key words: Cell division — Gland — Gunnera-Nostoc — Papilla(e) — Symbiosis.
