Abstract This comprehensive macromorphological and cuticular study of bennettitalean foliage from the Rhaetian–Bajocian (Late Triassic–Middle Jurassic) floras of the former mining districts of Scania, southern Sweden, has necessitated revision of several morphotaxa reported widely across Laurasia from the mid-Mesozoic. More than 25 000 fossil specimens from 42 localities in Scania were assessed, of which 732 yielded bennettitalean foliage remains. Fifty-one foliage taxa assigned to the… Expand

Bennettitales in the Rhaetian flora of Wüstenwelsberg, Bavaria, Germany
Comparison of the flora from Wustenwelsberg with adjacent Rhaetian floras revealed distinct local differences in the bennettitalean constitution, which are discussed in the light of palaeogeography and plant dispersal patterns. Expand

Williamsonia carolinensis sp. nov. and Associated Eoginkgoites Foliage from the Upper Triassic Pekin Formation, North Carolina: Implications for Early Evolution in the Williamsoniaceae (Bennettitales)
The unique features of W. carolinensis, along with the probable affinity with Eoginkgoites foliage, expands the known diversity of the Williamsoniaceae and supports previous suggestions of remarkably high levels of morphological disparity in the earliest history of the Bennettitales. Expand
Nilssoniopteris binggouensis sp. nov. (Bennettitales) from the Lower Cretaceous of Northeast China

Revision of the Pterophyllum species (Cycadophytina: Bennettitales) in the Carnian (Late Triassic) flora from Lunz, Lower Austria
A revision of the genus Pterophyllum in the famous Late Triassic flora of Lunz, Lower Austria, based on macromorphology, biometry, and epidermal anatomy suggests that certain Bennettitales locally became significant elements of the vegetation relatively early in their evolutionary history. Expand
Morphology and epidermal anatomy of Nilssonia (cycadalean foliage) from the Upper Triassic of Lunz (Lower Austria)
The macromorphology and epidermal anatomy are described and discussed, and the following new combination is introduced: Nilssonia riegeri nov. comb. Expand
The discovery of Nilssoniopteris further substantiates the significance of the Lunz flora as one of the richest and most diverse early Late Triassic floras from the Northern Hemisphere. Expand

The macromorphology and epidermal anatomy of three Late Carboniferous-Early Permian pteridosperm species, conventionally assigned to the form-genus Pseudomariopteris Danzé-Corsin, are described from the Stephanian of the Blanzy-Montceau Basin and Seeds attached to a P. busquetii specimen suggest a callistophytalean relationship for Pseudomeropteris.
