Article: A new coniferous male cone from the English Wealden and a discussion of pollination in the Cheirolepidiaecae [sic]
The cheirolepidiaceous pollen-bearing cone Classostrobus comptonensis is redescribed on the basis of new material from the type locality. A different pollen-bearing cone from the same deposit is described as a new species of Masculostrobus. The numerous specimens display a range of variation which probably represents various degrees of maturity. The structure of this new species, which is typically coniferous, is closer to that found in Taxodiaceae or Araucariaceae than any other extant family. It cannot yet be attributed to any leafy shoot.
