Abstract A revision of the genus Pterophyllum in the famous Late Triassic flora of Lunz, Lower Austria, based on macromorphology, biometry, and epidermal anatomy is presented. Two distinct species, Pterophyllum filicoides and Pterophyllum brevipenne , are recognized. Other Pterophyllum “species” described from Lunz by D. Stur and F. Krasser in the late 19th and early 20th centuries are interpreted as conspecific with either of these two species; others represent cycadalean foliage assignable to… Expand
Bennettitalean foliage in the Rhaetian-Bajocian (latest Triassic-Middle Jurassic) floras of Scania, southern Sweden.
TLDR
Cuticular analysis, associated fossils and sedimentological indices suggest that the Scanian Triassic–Jurassic bennettitaleans occupied relatively moist habitats but probably experienced physiological drought via growth on low-nutrient and low-pH substrates. Expand
FIRST RECORD OF NILSSONIOPTERIS (GYMNOSPERMOPHYTA, BENNETTITALES) FROM THE CARNIAN (UPPER TRIASSIC) OF LUNZ, LOWER AUSTRIA
TLDR
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
Late Palaeozoic Foliage from China Displays Affinities to Cycadales Rather than to Bennettitales Necessitating a Re-Evaluation of the Palaeozoic Pterophyllum Species
The epidermal anatomy of Pseudoctenis samchokense is described revealing non-bennettitalean characters of these leaves from the Permo-Carboniferous of China (and Korea). The specimens were originallyExpand
Sphenophytes, pteridosperms and possible cycads from the Wuchiapingian (Lopingian, Permian) of Bletterbach (Dolomites, Northern Italy)
The Bletterbach flora is the most important late Permian (Lopingian) flora of the Southern Alps. The study of a new fossiliferous bed stratigraphically below the cephalopod bed yielded almost 500Expand
Bennettitales in the Rhaetian flora of Wüstenwelsberg, Bavaria, Germany
TLDR
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
Cycadalean and bennettitalean foliage from the Triassic Madygen Lagerstätte (SW Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia)
Plant fossils recently collected from the Middle–Late Triassic Madygen Formation in SW Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia are described in detail. Based on the combination of gross morphology andExpand
Sphenophytes from the Carnian (Upper Triassic) of Lunz am See (Lower Austria)
The sphenophytes in the Late Triassic flora of Lunz (Lower Austria) are revised and illustrated for the first time. Three taxa have been identified, i.e. Equisetites arenaceus, E. conicus andExpand
The cycadalean megasporophyll Dioonitocarpidium in the Carnian (Late Triassic) flora of Lunz am See, Austria
TLDR
For the first time, epidermal anatomy is described for a Dioonitocarpidium species from cuticle remains and giant cycad-like foliage assigned to Nilssonia is identified as the most plausible option. Expand
The Carnian (Late Triassic) flora from Lunz in Lower Austria: Paleoecological considerations
Abstract A recently completed systematic macromorphological and cuticular analysis of compressed gymnosperm foliage from the famous Carnian (Late Triassic) flora from Lunz in Lower Austria hasExpand
Reconstruction of a bennettitalean flower from the Carnian (Upper Triassic) of Lunz, Lower Austria
TLDR
This study reconstructs a bennettitalean flower from isolated parts from the Carnian (Upper Triassic) of Lunz in Lower Austria, including Cycadolepis wettsteinii scale leaves, Haitingeria krasseri pollen organs, and Bennetticarpus wetsteinii ovulate organs/seed cones, based on correspondences in gross morphology and epidermal anatomy.

A NUMBER OF ADDITIONAL AND REVISED TAXA FROM THE LADINIAN FLORA OF THE DOLOMITES, NORTHERN ITALY
TLDR

Fossil Insect Eggs and Ovipositional Damage on Bennettitalean Leaf Cuticles from the Carnian (Upper Triassic) of Austria
TLDR
Two types of evidence for insect ovipositional activity occur on Nilssoniopteris (bennettitalean foliage) leaf cuticles from the Carnian of Austria and provide a rare direct insight into insect egg morphology and oviposition in the Late Triassic. Expand
Evolution and Classification of Beetles
TLDR
The beetle ovipositor represents the plesiomorphic form of that found in neuropteroids, so Coleoptera could not be the sister group of any particular neuropteroid order; but Hamilton (48) argued on the basis of wing venation thatColeoptera and Megaloptera are sister groups. Expand
