Pollen of 16 species and one variety of the Myricaceae was examined, including members of each of the genera proposed by Chevalier (1901) in addition to Canacomyrica (Guillaumin, 1939). Comparison of pollen characters within genera, within sections, between sections, and between genera suggests that the Myricaceae can be divided into four genera: Canacomyrica; Comptonia; Gale; and Myrica. The genus Myrica can be further divided into three sections; Cerophora, Fava, and Morella.
