An early Tertiary macroflora from West Dale, southwestern Australia.
Nevertheless, sometimes in red layers (Rabejac Fm = F4) and especially in green beds of the Salagou Fm, macroflora may be found but is less determinable.
Recent investigation and taxonomic revision ofthe macroflora suggest that the strata are most probably early Langsettian (Utting and Wagner 2005), and the proximity of the Namurian-Westphalian boundary is suggested by the presence of late Namurian floral elements.
In grey sediments, the plant assemblage is equally dominated by callipterids and conifers but with the remarkable co-occurrence of calamites (Doubinger, 1963; Galtier and Broutin, 1995; indicated as macroflora B on Fig.
Wagner of the macroflora of the overlying Joggins Formation demonstrated a floral assemblage consistent with the Langsettian of Europe, and Langsettian floral elements are present along with problematic "hinterland" taxa in the underlying Boss Point Formation (Utting and Wagner 2005).
In the study of paleogene macroflora, the number of features is limited: Vegetative and reproductive organs are almost always dissociated; color, texture, and volume are absent; and there is diverse damage and artifacts.
The first occurs near the Rabejac village where it contains various ripple marks, desiccation cracks, rain-drops, footprints due to Reptiles (Hyloidichnus major, Varanopus curvidactylus / Microsauripus acutipes, Dimetropus leisnerianus and Dromopus didactylus) and Amphibians (Batrachichnus salamandroides, Limnopus zeilleri, Amphisauropus latus), roots, macroflora and invertebrates trails: Acripes, Rusophycus, Cruziana and burrows: Scoyenia, Beaconites (Gand et al, 2004a,b; Lopez et al.
The results obtained hitherto in studies on the Miocene macroflora from the salt-mine at Wieliczka (S.
Fuglewicz 1980; Kozur 2003); the macroflora continues to exhibit a predominantly Permian character, while the palynoflora is transitional (Shu and Norris, 1999; Lozovsky et al, 2001).
