  • An extensive collection of fossilized ovules, ovulate cupules, and cupuliferous branching systems from late Devonian deposits of eastern West Virginia is described and named Elkinsia polymorpha gen. et sp. nov. Elkinsia cupules are borne at the tips of cruciately forking axes that show a moderate level of overtopping. Cupules are 1.0-1.8 cm long and 0.6-1.2 cm in maximum diameter. The cupule is constructed of slender axes that fork twice to produce four quarters; each quarter terminates in one… CONTINUE READING
