Pollen grains of 34 species of the genus Hydnocarpus (Flacourtiaceae) are described. Two pollen types, one of which is subdivided in two subtypes, are distinguished. Within Flacourtiaceae the pollen of Hydnocarpus is more or less isolated, but the related genus Chlorocarpa has rather similar pollen. In sculpture there exists some resemblance to Paropsia (Passifloraceae).
