M a t e r i a l s t u d i e d. Seed cone PA 1173.1.

D e s c r i p t i o n. Afragmentary seed cone with a short stalk fragment.

D i s c u s s i o n. The single specimen at hand shows the typical characters of this rare fossil conifer, namely the oval part of the seed cone and decussate phyllotaxy of broad, but not fused scale leaves. This incomplete specimen clearly matches the type material from Suletice, a site not far from Matrý ( Kvaček and Walther 1995, Kvaček 1999), from where more complete material of this species is known.
