The Romanian Early Jurassic (Hettangian–Sinemurian) floras represent a key element of the Eurosinian Province in which the Williamsoniaceae (Bennettitales) are well represented by vegetative remains (leaves, stems, roots) and reproductive structures. Up to the present, Early Jurassic bennettitalean reproductive structures have been found at only two localities in Romania: Anina and Doman. These localities belong to the Reşiţa Basin, Getic Nappe, South Carpathians, Romania, with Anina considered… 
The diversity of Australian Mesozoic bennettitopsid reproductive organs
TLDR
The extremely low representation of reproductive organs vis-à-vis foliage is interpreted to reflect a combination of physical disintegration of the seed-bearing units while attached to the host axis and, potentially, extensive vegetative reproduction in bennettopsids growing at high southern latitudes during the Mesozoic.
Williamsonia carolinensis sp. nov. and Associated Eoginkgoites Foliage from the Upper Triassic Pekin Formation, North Carolina: Implications for Early Evolution in the Williamsoniaceae (Bennettitales)
TLDR
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.
Weltrichia magna sp. nov., a new record for the Middle Jurassic of Oaxaca, México
TLDR
A new record is reported for this locality and a new species of male reproductive structure of the genus Weltrichia is reported, which would be the largestmale reproductive structure found in the region thus far, and increases the distribution of Weltichia in the Jurassic of Oaxaca.
Palynology of Jurassic (Bathonian) sediments from Donbas, northeast Ukraine
A palynological and sedimentological study of an outcrop succession adjacent to the village of Kamyanka within the Kharkiv region of northeast Ukraine was carried out. The successions occur within
Ferns of the Lower Jurassic from the Mecsek Mountains (Hungary): taxonomy and palaeoecology
TLDR
Most taxa grew in monospecific thickets in disturbed areas; a few probably formed bushes in mixed assemblages, whereas one taxon, P. kirchneri, probably was a component of the understorey in a stable, developed succession of humid environments.

Pronephrium stiriacum (Unger) Knobloch et Kvaček 1976 (Filicales, Thelypteridaceae Holttum 1971) is reported from the Oligocene Petroșani Basin and from the Miocene Bozovici Basin in Romania.

Aspects of Romanian Early-Middle Jurassic palaeobotany and palynology. Part VII. Successions and floras
Abstract The Jurassic floras of Romania occur in the Carpathian Mountains and in Dobrogea (Eastern Romania). In the South Carpathians, diverse and well preserved floras have been recorded since the
Early Cretaceous mesofossils from Portugal and eastern North America related to the Bennettitales-Erdtmanithecales-Gnetales group.
TLDR
Four new genera and six new species of fossil seed are described from five Early Cretaceous mesofossil floras from Portugal and eastern North America, suggesting that this newly recognized complex of extinct plants, together with Bennettitales, Erdtmanithecales, and Gnetales (the BEG group), is phylogenetically closely related.

TLDR
Wielandiella definitely forms a separate genus within the Williamsoniaceae that is distinct from Williamsoniella and Williamsonia and circumscribes a whole-plant concept that includes branched axes bearing leaves, immature seed cones, and monosporangiate, flowerlike reproductive structures.
Bennettitales from the Mecsek Mountains (Liassic), Hungary
TLDR
Of the 70 leaf specimens examined, two genera are recognized representing two species: Pterophyllum subaequale Hartz and Anomozamites marginatus (Unger) Nathorst, and Cycadolepis is also represented by two species.
Anatomically Preserved Williamsonia (Williamsoniaceae): Evidence for Bennettitalean Reproduction in the Late Cretaceous of Western North America
TLDR
An anatomically preserved ovulate cycadeoid cone has been discovered in Upper Cretaceous sediments of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada and reveals new features for the family Williamsoniaceae and allows for the interpretation of several additional facets of reproductive biology in the Bennettitales, particularly pollen tube production, pollination biology, and mode of fertilization.
