    Abstract

    Two Agathis species that are endemic to New Caledonia, A. moorei and A. ovata, produce coarsely granulate inaperturate pollen that resembles pollen of the Wollemi Pine (Wollemi nobilis). For this reason, these Agathis species are potential nearest living relatives of the fossil species Dilwynites granulatus, whose stratigraphic distribution has been used to establish a fossil record for Wollemia.
