Carya NUTT.

Carya fragiliformis (STERNB.) KVAČEK et H.WALTHER Pl. 6, Figs 1–3

1825 Phyllites fragiliformis STERNB. , p. 42, index iconum, pl. 50, fig. 1.

2002 Carya serrifolia (GÖPP.) KRÄUSEL; Radoň, p. 171, pl. 2, figs 11–12.

2007 Carya fragiliformis (STERNB.) KVAČEK et H.WALTHER; Walther et Kvaček, p. 110, pl. 11, figs 1–3, pl. 23, figs 8–10, text-fig. 6b.

M a t e r i a l s t u d i e d. Leaflet impressions PA 1170.6, 1190.1, 1190.2, 1338.1, 1340, 1351, 1385, 1390.1, 1390.2, 1409, 1418, 1339.2 (cf.), 1363.2 (cf.).

D e s c r i p t i o n. Numerous leaflets with oblong, slightly asymmetrical falcate blade, sharply serrate on the margin and with semicraspedodromous to craspedodromous venation.

D i s c u s s i o n. The material corresponds with the holotype of this fossil species based on a single specimen from Žichov (J. Kvaček and Straková 1997, Walther and Kvaček 2007). It is obviously a part of the whole plant that produced fruits described below as Carya quadrangula (KIRCHH.) J.-F.LEROY.

M a t e r i a l s t u d i e d. Fruit casts PA 1338.1–2,

1164.1, 1365, 1580.

D e s c r i p t i o n. Casts of fruits three-dimensionally preserved, partly split into halves, ovoid, some apically acuminate, 25–30 mm long and 15–30 mm wide.

D i s c u s s i o n. Such fruits were compared with Carya quadrangula by Mai (1981) in his revision of fossil Carya fruits recovered from various sites of the European Palaeogene and Carya rostrata (SCHLOTH.) SCHIMP. in his revision of the late Oligocene flora of the Rhön Mts. ( Mai 2007).
