    Asnisophylly : Presence of morphologically different types of leaves at the same node. Ex: Goldfussia, Selaginella, Salvinia.

    Heterophylly : Presence of morphologically different types of leaves at different nodes of the twig. Ex : Limnophila, Ranunculus, Coriander, Bean

    Leaf mosaic : Alignment of laminae of all the leaves of different nodes of a twig at the same level due to decrease in petiolar length from basal leaves to apical leaves and presence of laminae of smaller leaves in between laminae of larger leaves.
