C. mollis (n = 7) Artificial Hybrid O. tenella (n = 9)

Two individuals of this intergeneric hybrid combination had a mean pollen stainability of <1% and exhibited mostly univalents during meiosis.  Note the 4-lobed rays in the hybrid head on the right.  Red pencil lines on the disk and ray lobes is a polymorphic trait in populations of O. tenella.
