Abstract

In this paper the first part of a systematic study of the fossil flora from Botany Bay, Monte Flora Formation, Antarctica, is presented. In this contribution the Dipteridaceae are analyzed. The group includes six species distributed in three genera. The taxa determined are: Dictyophyllum (Dictyophyllum) atuelense Herbst 1964a, D. (D.) tenuifolium Stipanicic & Menéndez emend. Bonetti & Herbst 1964, Hausmannia papilio Feruglio emend. Herbst 1960, Goeppertella neuqueniana Herbst 1966, G. macroloba Herbst 1964b and G. herbstii Arrondo & Petriella 1982. The age of the formation is considered to be Jurassic, possibly not younger than Middle Jurassic.
