Pollinial Morphology on Ten Species of Orchidaceae Found in Southern Shan State
- Pollinial morphology of Orchidaceae were studied from Southern Shan State. The specimens of 10 species belonging to 10 genera were collected from Southern Shan State during 2016-2017. In the present study, two pollinia were found in five species, four pollinia in two species and eight pollinia in three species. The smallest pollinarium (4.8 - 5.4 × 4.8 - 5.4 mm) was found in Eria stricta Lindl. and the largest pollinarium (33.6 - 36.0 × 50.4 - 54.0 mm) was observed in Thunia alba (Lindl.) Rchb. f. Pollinial morphology of 10 species was recorded in their number, shape, size, colour and attachment of caudicle or stipe and viscidium to the pollinia. The pollinial morphology provides the knowledge for identification and future systematic research work of family Orchidaceae.
