The pollen morphology of 3 species belonging to the 2 genera of the Molluginaceae family were investigated using light microscopy and scanning microscopy. It was found to be stenopalynous in nature. The pollen grains are usually radially symmetrical, isopolar, oblate-spheroidal to prolate-spheroidal or sub-prolate, tricolpate. The tectum is scabrate-punctate. On the basis of the shape of the pollen, 2 distinct pollen types were identified, viz., Glinus lotodies type and Mollugo cerviana -type.
