  • The pollen morphology from 67 collections representing 52 species of Mutisia was analyzed by means of light, scanning electron and transmission electron microscopy. Pollen of Mutisia is comparable to that of the more widespread type found in Mutisiinae. The pollen grains of the genus are characterized by the spheroidal-subprolate to prolate shape, large size, tricolporate aperture, with mesoaperture, exine Mutisia type, with sculpturing microechinate to rugulate or microechinate-rugulate.
