Abstract

A LARGE number of the fern-like fronds of Carboniferous age, including many whole genera, as Neuropteris, Alethopteris, Callipteris, Linopteris, &c., have never been found to offer any satisfactory indications of a fern-like fructification. Some suspicion was thus awakened that such fronds may have belonged to plants other than true ferns.
