Abstract

The three well known form-species of the Talbragar Fish Bed Flora—Podozamites lanceolatus, Elatocladus planus and Taeniopteris spatulata—are redescribed as Agathis jurassica sp. nov., Rissikia talbragarensis sp. nov. and Pentoxylon australica sp. nov. respectively. The minor components of the assemblage are described and illustrated, and in some cases, reclassified. Additions are made to the list of plants recorded from the horizon.
