The achenes of Matricaria aurea and two varieties of M. chamomilla (var. chamomilla and var. reclaim) have slime cells on the surface and they are characterized by slime envelope formation during hydration. The slime in these taxa is composed of pectins and cellulose. The slime could play important role in the distribution and colonisation of new habitats in Matricaria taxa.
