The plant family Myrtaceae is represented in the Paleogene-Neogene fossil pollen record by the genus Myrtaceidites. We review each formally described Myrtaceidites morphospecies and update fossil-extant affinities based on a comprehensive analysis of extant Myrtaceae genera pollen morphotypes and the recent tribal phylogenetic classification of Myrtaceae. New images of Myrtaceidites morphotypes preserved in Paleocene to Pliocene sediments are used to illustrate the morphological variation...[Show more]
