Identification of a previously unassigned pollen type in Central American honeys ('Cuba-form'): Aeschynomene americana L. (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae)

Identification of a previously unassigned pollen type in Central American honeys ('Cuba-form'): Aeschynomene americana L. (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae)

A pollen type known as 'Cuba-form' is characteristic in honeys from Central American countries, e.g. Mexico (Yucatan, Chiapas), Guatemala. Although it constitutes up to 16% total pollen, its plant source has not previously been identified. The same pollen type, found in a pollen grain collection in Ethiopia, was identified as being from Aeschynomene americana. Pollen from this species, and 'Cuba- form' pollen from Mexican and Cuban honeys, were found to be very similar.
