Abstract: The pollen morphology of the Catesbaeeae-Chiococceae-Exostema complex as recently treated by Delprete (1966) was examined with LM and SEM. The group is remarkably stenopalynous; typical representatives have medium sized, 3-colpate pollen with a perforate tectum covered with microspines. The inner nexine ornamentation is pronounced and offers more variation than the sexine pattern. A typology of the inside structures is presented based on LM observations and SEM observations of sectioned grains.
