Embryology ofGlinus lotoides Linn

  • H. S. Narayana
  • B. C. Lodha


The quadrilocular anther has a 4-layered wall. The endothecium is fibrous. The uni-layered glandular tapetum consists of 2- to 3-nucleate, many nucleolate cells. The arrangement of microspores is tetrahedral or decussate. The pollen grains are spherical, tricolpate and 3-celled at the time of shedding. The ovule is ana-campylotropous, bitegminal and crassinucellar. There is a funicular obturator. The development of the embryo-sac follows the Polygonum type. The synergids are elongated with filiform apparatus. The egg is pear-shaped and the antipodals ephemeral. The endosperm is Nuclear. Embryogeny conforms to the Linum variation of Solanad type.
