Pollen Morphology: The pollen produced by the species in this family are spherical and between 15-25um in diameter. There are many pores (>15, panto-porate) that are small (1.5-2.5um) and are scattered all over the pollen grain. The surface texture of the pollen varies between species, with some being slightly granular (scabrate) and others have a smooth or very fine mesh surface texture.
