Abstract

Study of the Carboniferous coal flora of the Nord and Lorraine basins, France, revealed fragments of fertile pteridophyte pinnae exhibiting distinctive features, which belong to five genera of sphenopterids. Five new species are erected for these forms and described--Crossotheca minima, Myriotheca denticulata, Stellatheca parvula, Oligocarpia microscopica, and Dendraena rotundata. Each is smaller than other species of the same genus.
