These photos aim to facilitate a direct visual comparison.
In the search for further differentiating characteristics or similarities, you can now find on this page SEM photographs of lophophora seeds and pollen as well as comparisons of lophophora seeds of many different species and from various habitats.
Assuming that the seeds and pollen of a single plant genus are authentic (similar to a genetic fingerprint), this also confirms the enormous variability within this fascinating genus.
The photographs taken using a scanning electron microscope were based on different seeds and pollen taken from specific habitats.
