The specimen was mounted on slides and given light microscope and regional light microscope camera treatments to examine the interior of the flower. The light microscope revealed fine filaments of tubular pollen enclosed in small bulbs at the points where they protruded from the leaf surface. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images revealed the typical features of pollen and confirmed the present species. The distribution of pollen granules, which vary in size and shape, was also shown to be regular in each polarity.
