Abstract

The genus Rissikia gen. nov. consisting of leafy
shoots and detached pollen and seed cones is
described, with two species, R. media (Tenison
Woods) com. nov. and R. apiculata sp. nov. Also
described is Mataia gen. nov. with one species
M. podocarpoides (Ettinghausen) com. nov. These
are all ascribed to the Podocarpaceae, and the
evolution of the Family, particularly of the epimatium
is discussed.
