M a t e r i a l s t u d i e d. Needle leaf PA 1393.

D e s c r i p t i o n. Aflat lineal needle, 2.5 mm wide and 15 mm long with an acute apex and no traces of stomatal areas.

D i s c u s s i o n. The single specimen at hand matches the type from the early Oligocene site Seifhennersdorf ( Walther and Kvaček 2007) in overall morphology. The identification is uncertain without anatomical evidence. This conifer occurs but rarely in the neovolcanic area of North Bohemia (Kundratice) to Saxony (Seifhennersdorf)   .
