FERN IMPRESSION - JURASSIC, GLOUCESTERSHIRE.


Sphenopteris cysteoides Lindley.

Cut down square slab of oolitic limestone. On the upper surface is the negative impression of part of a fern which has been preserved with a brown iron staining. Plant fossils from the Great Oolite are often rather poorly preserved. The general outline of this plant is quite similar to a conifer also recorded from this horizon, Thuytes divaricatus Sternberg but this specimen is almost certainly the fern and not the conifer.

Jurassic, Bathonian, Great Oolite.
N.E. of Naunton, Gloucestershire.

Plant : 21.5cm. long.
