The article discusses the gynomonoecious individuals or gynomonoecy, wherein both male and female individuals are located on same specimen, in the plant populations of campanulaceae or lobelia spicata in Illinois. It notes that the gynomonoecy rarity of the lobelia spicata are true in herbarium specimens and in the field. It mentions a study that reveals five lobelia spicata populations with at least one gynomonoecious individual in the state, in which eight gynomonoecious were found among the 375 examined herbarium specimens. It reveals that female proportion in the hermaphroditic flowers in gynomonoecious individuals is varying. The authors conclude that 50% of the flowers are hermaphroditic among the 10 out of the 12 examined gynomonoecious individuals.
