Mesosporous silica

Marta A Morbelli, John R Rowley, Gamal El-Ghazaly
In mature megaspores of Selaginella diffusa (C. Presl) Spring the units of the exospore are ordered and become unordered toward the outer and inner surfaces. The exospore surface is coated with silica at maturity. The insertion of the future gap begins in early stages with formation of many minigaps within the inner part of the exospore distally. The mesospore, like the exospore, is resistant to the acetolysis reaction and can, thus, provisionally be considered to consist of sporopollenin. Unit structures within the outer part of the mesospore are unordered, but become ordered in the middle and inner parts...
