Variation in spermoderm features along with macro-morphological characters of eighteen wild and cultivated genotypes of Vigna were studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). On the basis of wax deposition, seed surface type is grouped in four groups. It is observed that though there were differences in seed coat colour and seed size in the wild progenitors of Vigna but the pattern of wax deposition on the seed coat is similar type.
