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.
From Latin: striatus to emphasize the finely striate pollen wall.
