In the present paper an attempt has been made to examine the relation of palynology with classification. Palynology is supposed to be an important tool for classifying the plants. The morphological characters of the pollen shall be categorized under aperture, size, shape, exine ornamentation, etc. The aperture character is considered to be primary importance, the exine surface pattern as secondary and others as tertiary. For the present investigation 15 species of Solanum were selected. Plants used in this study were collected from different localities of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. All the 15 members of the genus Solanum showed Trizonoporate, aperture morphotype, psilate exine ornamentation and circular shape.
