An outcrop in which plant-remains of early Palaeozoic type occur is situated in the railway-cutting 8 chains south of Warrentinna Railway-station, in North-Eastern Tasmania. The results of this work at Warrentinna,though unsatisfactory on account of the imperfect and fragmentary nature of the specimens obtained, are recorded here in the hope that interest may be stimulated in Tasmania which will lead to the discovery of new fossiliferous beds in the same rock series.
