Description

Excerpt from Records of the Australian Museum, Vol. 4 This (pl. I., fig. 1) is the largest of the three small cones, and is eighteen millimetres in length. Under the coaly pellicle which practically constitutes the fossil, the shale is impressed with narrow transverse node-like constrictions, from which the leaves spring in upward succession, streaming above the apex of the cone. The smallest of the two larger cones (pl. Ii., fig. 2) is twenty-seven millimetres long by thirteen wide (as compressed). Here the nodal lines are very apparent, each giving support to a row of delicate leaves, rather broad at the base, but fine and acicular above. The apical portions are bent outwards at an acute angle, and are visible at the sides of the cone. The fifth cone (pl. Ii., fig. 1) only differs from the last slightly in size, otherwise exhibiting precisely the same characters it is thirty millimetres long, and seventeen broad.
