Diagnosis
Main axis is 1.2(3.1)-4.7 mm wide, at least 57 mm long. Appendages arc 0.26·(0.34) 0.40 mm wide; vegetative ones 8-17 mm long, fertile ones 5-·10 mm long; some of the appendages of both types show one isotomy (50 100°). Sporangia are 1.0-(1.9)·-3.4 mm long and 0.5( 0.8) 1.6 mm wide. Sporangium epidermic cells arc elongate, approximately 200 l.lIn long and 20 11m wide. Spores arc 63-(78}·83 11m in diameter, circular, oval to subtriangular in equatorial outline. Smooth contact areas are outlined by the trilete mark extending 2/3 to 4/5 of the spore radius and by curvaturae perfectac. Distal and proximoequatorial sides are covered with coni, pila or verrucae, 0.5-··(1.5)-2.0 11m high and wide and circular in apical view. The spores arc similar to the sporae dispersae species Dibolisporites echinaceus. Xylem clements are approximately 6- (15)-18 11m wide, being at least 250 11m long.
