A new interpretation is given of the genus Eucommiidites and further illustration of the type species E. troedssonii. E. delcourtii sp. nov. is erected for pollen observed in the micropyle and pollen chamber of a new Lower Cretaceous seed Spermatites pettensis sp. nov., which is also described. This new evidence is all believed to support the gymnospermous origin of Eucommiidites.
