TitlePollen morphology of the genera Pometia, Cubilia, Otonephelium, and Litchi (Sapindaceae-Nephelieae)
JournalBlumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants
AbstractThe pollen morphology of the nine taxa within the genus Pometia, the three subspecies of Litchi chinensis, and the species Cubilia cubili and Otonephelium stipulaceum (Sapindaceae — Nephelieae) was studied. Three pollentypes were found: 1) the Pometia pollentype, which occurs in all nine taxa of the genus; 2) the Litchi pollentype, which can be divided in two subtypes: a) characteristic for Litchi chinensis subsp. chinensis. subsp. phillippinensis, and Otonephelium and, as could be concluded from a provisional investigation, also for Xerospermum and Nephelium, and b) characteristic for Litchi chinensis subsp. javensis; 3) the Cubilia pollentype. Possible evolutionary trends in the tribe Nephelieae are discussed
