Ornamentation and Structure

LMornamentation LM: -,  nexine: -,  sexine: -,  SEMornamentation SEM: microechinate,  TEMtectum: -,  infratectum: -,  foot layer: -,  endexine: -,  intine: -,  wall peculiarities: -

Miscellaneous

Annotations

pollen grains with irregularly arranged apertures occur frequently; small crystals attached to pollen and locular wall; locular wall probably covered with a sporopolleninous microechinate and perforate layer
