A wide variety of cuticles and tubular elements is described from a Late Silurian (Ludlow Series) locality in Wales which has yielded a macroflora containing Cooksonia Lang, Steganotheca Edwards and vascularized axes. These microfissils are compared with Lang's Downtonian Nematothallus complex and Silurian assemblages of similar composition from North America. The majority of these microfossils derive from nonvascular plants of uncertain affinity which lived on land.
