A distinctive palynologic assemblage is associated with Equisetites soil beds and fragment partings in the Wadhurst Clay of south-east England. Some of the components are probably the products of a local flora which grew in or near the Equisetites communities. Palynologic and palaeobotanic data suggest that the communities were isolated from the 'homogeneous Wealden delta flora', probably offshore from the delta complex. New taxa have been recorded from the assemblages. Converrucosisporites venitus, Regresporites lophus, Retitriletes sp., Tri-lobosporites ivanovae, and Admolia amphidoxa are described.
