Galatella albanica Degen the synonym Aster albanicus Degen takes part in the tribe Astereae, subfamily Asteroideae (Asteraceae). It is an endemic specie of our country, Albania,but we can find them even in Kosove and in the south of Serbia. In Albania we find Galatella albanica Degen in dry and rocky places and a few in sandy places which have humidity (Durres - Karavasta). This plant is studied even by the previous authors with the material taken from the rocky areas of Librazhdi and Shkopeti. The material for this study is taken fresh from the sandy places in the wood of Divjaka because of the aim of this study is to see if the ecologic factor affects on the pollen grains of this plant. According to the results of this study, the pollen grains of Galatella albanica Degen are tricolporate. In ecuatorial view the shape of pollen grains is elliptic to circular, while in polar view the shape is circular to triangular. The exine has an echinate sculpture and it has two- layer.
