A recently discovered assemblage of late Early Devonian psilophytes is reported from a new unit, the Trout Valley formation, in the Traveler Mountain quadrangle area of N.-central Maine. The flora includes the remains of Psilophyton princeps var. ornatum, Drepanophycus gaspianus, Sporogonites sp., Taeniocrada cf. T. decheniana, Aphyllopteris sp., Hostimella sp., and the problematic alga, Prototaxites. This is the first occurrence in New England of such well defined members of the widespread Psilophyton Flora of the Early Devonian.
