VI. Zosterophyllum,* a genus originally described by Penhallow, is the most ancient vascular plant know from British rocks. This paper shows that various structures, commonly occurring in separate fragments, are referable to one plant. This plant consisted of a system of erect branched axes growing from a lower rhizome-like region. The axes bear radially arranged, stalked reniform appendages; the position of these suggests that they may be sporangia but no proof of the presence of spores has been obtained. A central vascular strand about 1/4 mm. wide consists of tracheids with close annular thickening.[long dash]VII. The specimen of Pseudosporochnus described from Scotland is of special note because of its similarity to P. krejii from the Middle Devonian of Bohemia.
