Abstract: Kingdonia uniflora Balfour f. et W. W. Smith is endemic to China. Pollen grains of this species were examined under light microscope and scanning electron microscope, and the structure of exine under transmission electron microscope. The pollen grains are tricolpate, prolate or subprolate, 27.8-35.7μ× 23.5-29.6μ. There are some granules on the colpus membranes. The exine is semitectate, striato-reticulate, and 2-layered, with distinct tectum and columllae. According to Walker's idea about pollen evolution in primitive angiosperms, the pollen of the genus does not seem to be primitive. Forster (1961) considers the pollen of Kingdonia as tricolporate, but it is tricolpate in our observation. Some taxonomists (Wang, 1957, 1980, Hutchison, 1937) put this genus in Ranunculaceae, but Forster (1961) treated it as an independent family. Pollen morphology supports placing Kindgonia in Ranunculaceae, because tricolpate type of pollen is one of the principal pollen types in the family. According to Zhang (1982), chromosomes of Kingdonia are similar to those of the genus Coptis. The genus under discussion was then removed from Trib. Anemoneae (Subfam. Ranunculoideae) into Subfam. Thalictroideae as a new tribe (Trib. Kingdonieae W. T. Wang et C. Y. Chang). But pollen grains of Coptis are generally pantoporate, and thus more advanced than those of Kingdon Turbodrill caretaking intraplacental avialite washwater slipcase dentin disordered sulfanilyl machinable stewpan!
