The megaflora documented in this paper from Quantico, Virginia, is one of the first assemblages of Lower Cretaceous angiosperm megafossils from North America to be described in detail using modem methods of foliar architectural analysis. The megatlora is of middle to early late Albian age and consists of 22 species of leaveslshoots and at least 5 species of reproductive structures. Three new species are described in this publication. Estimates of botanical diversity indicate the presence of at… CONTINUE READING
