Several new gametophytes are described from the Early Devonian Rhynie chert. The new monotypic genus Remyophyton, being the gametophyte of Rhynia, is represented by a dense stand of in situ preserved gametophytes with antheridia- and archegonia-bearing axes. The gametophytes are remarkably small in comparison to those of other Rhynie chert plants. The generic diagnoses of Lyonophyton and Langiophyton are emended to include archegonia- and antheridiabearing axes. All essential stages of the reproductive cycle, i.e. sporophytes, and male and female gametophytes, can now be demonstrated for three of the six land plants from the Rhynie chert, i.e. Rhynia gwynne-vaughanii, Aglaophyton major and Horneophyton lignieri.
