Generic nomenclature of Mesozoic tracheidoxyl fossils with araucarioid cross-fields



Generic nomenclature of Mesozoic tracheidoxyl fossils with araucarioid cross-fields



Taxon 42(1): 74-80



Many studies of fossil wood did not respect the International code of botanical nomenclature. As a result their nomenclature is complex and fluctuating. During preparation of a thesis on Jurassic fossil woods from Franche-Comte (northeastern France), problems have arisen with the nomenclature of gymnospermous woods with araucarioid cross-field pitting. This work is a nomenclatural review of the twenty-one generic names that have been used to designate mesozoic tracheidoxyls with araucarioid cross-fields. Only eight are legitimate and can be justifiably used. As a toxonomic summary, a generic key is proposed. (The following genera are discussed: Agathoxylon, Baieroxylon, Brachyoxylon, Dammaroxylon, Pseudagathoxylon, Telephragmoxylon, Simplicioxylon, and Platyspiroxylon).
