Through the kindness of Messrs. Clive Lord and P. B.
Nye I have been enabled to examine collections of Mesozoic fossil Plants from the Tasmanian and Launceston Museums
and the Geological Survey of Tasmania. This has given
me the opportunity of checking the determinations of some
of these fossils made by the late R. M Johnston some thirty
to forty years ago. Unfortunately. a large proportion of
the specimens had lost their locality labels, but it is probable
that one acquainted with the rocks in which these fossils
occur in Tasmania could, with reasonable certainty, determine
the localities from which the majority of the specimens came.
The notes in this paper are not quite complete, but as
many of the specimens were from the exhibition collections
of the Tasmanian Museum, it was desirable that I should
not keep them very long. In order not to delay publication
of the results of my examination I have thought it advisable
to present the following notes now, and hope, during next
year, to be able to supplement this paper with another• short
one, which should contain a few additional observations,
together with some analysis of the Tasmanian Mesozoic
floras, and comparison with the Mesozoic floras of the mainland
and other areas.
