Abstract [en]

A small assemblage of plant macrofossils incorporating representatives of Glossopteris, Vertebraria, Dictyopteridium, Samaropsis and Schizoneura is described from the Little River Coal Measures in northeast Queensland, Australia. The assemblage is interpreted to be of Lopingian age based on taxa shared with units in the Bowen Basin to the south. The fossil assemblage represents the northernmost late Permian flora yet described from Australia but has a typical representation of Gondwanan taxa and lacks evidence of Cathaysian elements. The only evidence of an associated fossil fauna is in the form of possible oviposition scars on some Glossopteris leaves. The assemblage is associated with coal beds and is considered to reflect growth in peat-forming alluvial plain settings under a mid-latitude humid temperate climate.
