Hi student
Ubish bodies also known as orbicules are small acellular structure of sporopollenin.
It is present in the tapetal cells.
These are just the byproducts of pollen wall sporopollenin synthesis.
Ubisch bodies help in pollen development.

A small, granular structure that is found in the extracellular matrix of cell of the secretory tapetal layer that surrounds developing pollen grains.Ubisch bodies  have a sporopollenin coat, are attached to the peritapetal wall, and may play a role in pollen development.

While the spore wall formation is going on inside the tetrad wall,some curious rounded bodies of lipid nature appear in the cytoplasm of the tapetal cells.These bodies are called ubisch, migrate to the cell surface where they are coated with sporopollenin and are released into anther cavity.The sporopllenin coated ubisch bodies are involved in the external thickening of exine
