Madygen bryophytes and lycopsids


Moisan, P., S. Voigt, J. W. Schneider & H. Kerp. 2012. New fossil bryophytes from the Triassic Madygen Lagerstätte (SW Kyrgyzstan). Review of Palaeobotany and Palynology 187:29–37. [Abstract]

Recent paper on liverworts and leafy mosses from the Madygen Formation. Adds some new aspects about the Madygen flora which is known for its diversity of seed ferns, lycopsids, horsetails, and cycadophytes whereas (unambiguous) fossils of non-vascular plants, some of them occurring densely packed in shallow lacustrine sediments (and possibly represent submerged plants of the lake margin), have been described for the first time by Moisan and colleagues.

Moisan, P. & S. Voigt. 2013, in press. Lycopsids from the Madygen Lagerstätte (Middle to Late Triassic, Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia). Review of Palaeobotany and Palynology. [Abstract]

Revision of the Madygen lycopsids and of the problematic "Longisquama-appendage-like" foliage Mesenteriophyllum based on materials excavated between 2006 and 2009 whose macromorphological and microscopic epidermal features were studied. Originally described by Sixtel (1961) as a new genus of gymnosperms, Mesenteriophyllum-like plants are now found to belong to different higher lycopsid taxa (Pleuromeiales, Isoetales).
