Abstract

Many years have elapsed since the late Professor Sir F. McCoy drew attention to what he considered the inflorescence of Phyllotheca, notwithstanding that he misunderstood its nature. Since 1847, the year in which McCoy wrote, Heer and Schmalhausen have both described strobili, believed by them to be the reproductory condition of this interesting and widely distributed Permo-Carboniferous plant. The announcement has lately been made that Professor R. Zeiller has, or is about to publish, additional information afforded by specimens from Asia Minor.
