"Most flowers are based on a particular numerical plan.... The ending -merous, along with a numerical prefix, is used to indicate a flower's numerical plan. For example, a flower might have four sepals, four petals, eight stamens, and four carpels; such a flower would be described as 4-merous." — Judd et al, Plant Systematics, a Phylogenetic Approach
