Abstract

A new leaf species of Nothofagaceae, Nothofagus plicata, from southern and southwestern continental Australia is described. N. policata has plicate vernation and is therefore considered to be a deciduous species. This provides the first macrofossil evidence for deciduous elements on mainland Australia in the Eocene, as well as the previously missing macrofossil evidence for Nothofagus forests which palynologists have suggested existed in this region at that time. © 1995.
