Eckartiopsis parva E.M.Friis, P.R.Crane et K.R.Pedersen
Stamens with long tetrasporangiate and dithecate anthers. Pollen grains small, almost circular in equatorial outline, monocolpate, colpus extending for
the full length of the grains. Exine semitectate-reticulate and columellate. Reticulum heterobrochate; heteropolar with coarser reticulum on proximal face than on distal face. Muri smooth with flattened to slightly rounded profiles, supported by long distinct columellae. Colpus margin distinct, microreticulate, lacking psilate regions around the end of the colpus. Colpus membrane granular. Orbicules large, dentate, densely scattered on inner surface of the anther wall.
From the generic name Eckartia and Greek: -opsis (appearance) to indicate close similarity between the two taxa.
