D e s c r i p t i o n. The leaves are oblong elongate, petiolate, with fine denticulate margin.

D i s c u s s i o n. These morphotypes are associated with the above larger leaf forms and may represent only smaller variants of Alnus rhenana   . A resolution of its position cannot be made without epidermal studies. Similar leaf forms also occur in the Oligocene site Valeč in the Doupovské hory Mts., where they are associated with alder infructescences described as Steinhauera oblonga C.PRESL   in STERNB. (J. Kvaček and Straková 1997: 111, pl. 40, fig. 4).

D e s c r i p t i o n. Ovoid and strongly compressed infructescences.

D i s c u s s i o n. The material at hand is very poorly preserved. Only its overall form allows   identifying it as alder female infructescences. The association with foliage of Alnus rhenana   suggests that both organs may belong to the same plant element.
