Podocarpophyllum Gomolitzky is studied in detail from the type locality Angren (Uzbekistan, Middle Jurassic). Emended diagnoses of the genus and its type species P. singulare Gomolitzky are provided. For the first time, members of the genus are reported from the Lower Jurassic of the Mangyshlak Peninsula (western Kazakhstan), where P. kazachstanicum sp. nov. is described, and from the Middle Jurassic of the eastern Ural Mountains, where P. mesozoicum (Kiritchkova) comb. nov. is established.

A new species of Pseudotorellia florin (Ginkgoales) from the Middle Jurassic of Eastern Mangyshlak (Kazakhstan)

The main distinction of the new species from the other species of this genus is the relief cutinization of periclinal walls of cells of the lower epidermis, especially within stomatal bands, expressed in prominent cuticular ridges and papillae of irregular shape.

The genus Pseudotorellia Florin (Ginkgoales): Taxonomic and stratigraphic aspects

The history of investigation of the common Jurassic and Cretaceous genus Pseudotorellia Florin (Ginkgoales) represented by needle-shaped, narrow linear or lanceolate leaves bearing several veins and

Early Tertiary Podocarpaceae: Megafossils from the Eocene Anglesea Locality, Victoria, Australia

Fossil Podocarpaceae from the Eocene Anglesea locality in Victoria are described and assigned to six species from five modern genera using cuticular and other vegetative morphology.

Eocene vegetation from hasties, north-eastern Tasmania

An important 'whole flora' taxonomic treatment of a macrofossil assemblage from Hasties, north-eastern Tasmania, notes the first occurrence in Australia of the conifer Lepidothamus (currently restricted to New Zealand and South America).

Cuticle Micromorphology of Some New Caledonian Podocarps

Cuticle micromorphology of herbarium and preserved leaves of four genera of New Caledonian podocarps were studied and compared with general morphological characters used in several taxonomic treatments of the family to distinguish the genera in the Podocarpaceae.

Early cretaceous podocarp megastrobilus

Abstract A female podocarp strobilus from sediments of Mokoiwian or Korangan (Early Cretaceous) age is recorded and illustrated.

Cuticle Micromorphology of Prumnopitys Philippi (Podocarpaceae)

Cuticle micromorphology supports the separation of P. amara into a separate section (or even separate genus) from the other taxa in the genus and indicates the reevaluation of P montana var.

Cuticle Micromorphology of Podocarpus, Subgenus Podocarpus, Section Scytopodium (Podocarpaceae) of Madagascar and South Africa

The most useful characters to distinguish species of this section are the micromorphology of cuticle on the guard cell and subsidiary cell surfaces, epidermal cell shapes, and sometimes the length of polar extensions.
