Studies on the Fusinized-Wood Fossils of Podocarpaceae from Huolinhe Coalfield, Inner Mongolia, China

Cui Jin-zhong   

Abstract: Some fusinized-wood fossils from seam 14 and seam 17 of Lower Coal-bearing Member of Huolinhe Formation in Huolinhe Coalfield were observed and described. They were as- signed to Podocarpoxylon dacrydioides sp. nov., Podocarposcylon sp., Phyllocladoxylon sp. 1 and Phyllocladoscylon sp. 2. P odocarpoylon and Phyllocladoxylon were two types of ancient wood fossils of Podocarpaceae. That both of them were found in Huolinhe Coalfield, seven among the twelve observed specimens belonged to the former, and the others to the latter, indicating that the plants of Podocarpaceae might be the main coal-forming plants in the coalfield.

Key words: Huolinhe Formation, Early Cretaceous, Fossil woods, Podocarpoxylon, Phyllocladoxylon
