Abstract: This paper reports the studies on two species of fossil woods, which have been excavated from the northern part of Yanglou Town, Xinzhou County, the city of Wuhan, Hubei Province. According to the observation of wood anatomical features they were identified as Catalpa wuhanensis sp. nov. Yang and Gmelina wuhanensis sp. nov. Yang growing in Late Tertiary Period, which further proved the hot and humid climate during that period. Moreover, the fossil woods of the Lauraceae and the Legu minosae published earlier in Acta Bot. Sin. (1987) were further identified as Laurinoxylon wuhanense sp. nov. Yang and Acrocarpus fraxinifolius Arn. ex Wight.

Key words: Hubei Province, Angiospermous fossil woods
