A PORTION of a slender stem, with two pedicellate flower-like structures in organic attachment, shown two-thirds natural size in Fig. 1, was recently discovered in Lower Permian beds at Vereeniging, Transvaal. Remains of Glossopteris spp. leaves and a petiole of a leaf of Noeggerathiopsis sp. occur on the same slab of red ferruginous shale. The original organic material was replaced by ferric oxide, and the plant is preserved in the form of a compressed cast of red ochre.
