M a t e r i a l s t u d i e d. Sterile pinna PA 1428.1, 1428.2


D e s c r i p t i o n. A fragmentary serrate pinna which shows characteristic areolation of the medial venation and thus allows safe identification of this sterile fern fragment.

D i s c u s s i o n. This fern was occasionally noted in the Palaeogene of the České středohoří Mts. in tuffitic deposits near Březiny (Birkigt) – see the published, but not illustrated, records by Engelhardt (1891; as Woodwardia roessneriana HEER   ). Its main record in the Czech Republic is centred in the early Miocene deposits of the Most Basin, namely in the Most Formation ( Bůžek 1971, Hurník 1978).
