Pollen from Woollyfruit Sedge (Carex lasiocarpa, Cyperaceae) confocal microscopy z-stacks

Download 3D model


Pollen from slender/woollyfruit sedge (Carex lasiocarpa, Cyperaceae). Sedge pollen is deceptive. It is a pseudomonad - three conjoined, rudimentary pollen grains masquerading as a single grain. It also has poroids - indistinct apertures without a clear margin. Technical description of Carex pollen, from PalDat (Halbritter, 2016): : medium-sized heteropolar tetrads/pseudomonads, pear-shaped or irregular, circular or irregular in polar view, poroidate, with a scabrate/microechinate/microverrucate exine. This model is part of the 3D Pollen Project.
