Burgeria striata E.M.Friis, P.R.Crane et K.R.Pedersen
Pollen grains of medium size, broadly ellipsoidal to subcircular in equatorial outline, monocolpate. Colpus in fully developed grains almost as long as ongest axis, broad; colpus in smaller (aborted?) grains about half the length of the longest axis. Exine tectate-punctate and columellate with short columellae and a thin foot layer. Surface of tectum finely striate. Orbicules spherical, punctate with finely striate surface.
In honor of the American botanist William C. Burger in recognition of his contributions to the study of angiosperm evolution.
