VI.—On the Discovery of Archœeosigillaria Vanuxemi (Göppert) at Meathop Fell, Westmorland, with a Description of the Locality

  • J. Wilfrid Jackson


In September last I discovered a number of plant remains in the Carboniferous Limestone at Meathop Fell, Westmorland, amongst which were several fragments of what, at first sight, looked like a species of Lepidodendron. A closer examination, however, of one or two of the better preserved specimens, which showed traces of leaf-scars, at once suggested Archœsigillaria Vanuxemi, specimens of which I had previously seen in the Kendal Museum.
