Family:Asteraceae
Scientific Name:Stomatochaeta
Discussion:Pollen grains of the species of Stomatochaeta agree closely with those of Stenopadus other than S. campestris. As shown for Stomatochaeta cylindrica in figure 92 A-C, the grains are subprolate in shape. F.urrows are shorter than in Stenopadus. The exine is psilate or nearly so, and exine thickness is approximately the same as in Stenopadus. Grains of Stomatochaeta, however, seem to be appreciably smaller than those of most species of Stenopadus.
