Fragmentary non-vascular plant microfossils from the late Silurian of Wales

A wide variety of cuticles and tubular elements is described from a late Silurian (Ludlow Series) locality in Wales which has already yielded a macroflora containing Cooksonia Lang, Steganotheca Edwards and vascularized axes. These microfossils are compared with Lang's Downtonian .Nematothallus complex and Silurian assemblages of similar composition from north America. It is concluded that the majority of these microfossils derive from non-vascular plants of uncertain affinity which lived on land.
