Early development of the pinnately compound leaves of Murraya paniculata was studied using both epi-illumination and scanning electron microscopy as well as semithin plastic sectioning of the same specimens that were illustrated by means of epi-illumination. It is shown that morphological conclusions may be affected by the technical approach. The origins of pinnate leaves such as those found in Murraya are discussed..
