Red Vein Indian Mallow (Abutilon pictum) pollen is medium to large in size and has a spiny exine surface. This single grain is loosely attached to the surface of a delicate young leaf. Mature blossoms are yellow to orange, cup-shaped, and hang like lanterns, thereby exhibiting the typical adaptations of bird pollination. However, pollen transferred by animals must stick to hasty pollinators. To give them an extra hold to feathers of pollinating birds, the capsule surface of the mallow pollen grain is tightly covered with up to a hundred spikes.
