Well-preserved axes of the southern hemisphere Permian lycopod Cyclodendron leslii (Seward, 1903) are described from localities in South Africa. New information includes details of the cuticle with stomata, epidermal cells, leafy vegetative axes, and fertile axes. C. leslii was an arborescent heterosporous lycopod with a restricted stratigraphic range, and it formed a small but significant part of the Glossapteris flora of South Africa.
