Abstract

Two new species of Epacriphyllum and one of Richeaphyllum are proposed from Oligocene sediments at Little Rapid River, western Tasmania. Leaves which are probably of the tribe Styphelieae also occur in these sediments. These are the earliest macrofossil records of the family, and confirm that two large phylogenetic groups within the family had differentiated by this time. A key to groups of epacridaceous genera is given to assist the identification of fossil leaves. -from Authors
