The results of a complete study of nutlet morphology, anatomy and mixocarpy in two cultivated species of Nepeta genus (Lamiaceae, Nepetoideae) are investigated. The cultivated species are represented by Nepeta cataria L. ‘Citriodora’ and Nepeta grandiflora Bieb. (Sect. Nepeta). Two main types of pericarp pattern, smooth and sculptured, are described. A detailed description of the anatomy, macromorphology and micromorphology of Nepeta’s nutlets is presented. The mucilage production (mixocarpy) has also been tested. Original photographs and SEM images for mentioned taxa are provided. A polytomous morpho-anatomical identification key based on the nutlets’s characters was made.
