The wood anatomy of calyptranthes concinna DC. is described in this paper. Photomicrographs and quantitative date of the anatomical structure are presented. The most important anatomical features observed in the wood are common for the Myrtaceae family. Among these features are included the presence of simple perforation plates in vessel members, small and vestured vessel-pits and the absence of crystals in the wood parenchyma.
