On some "northern" elements in the Lower Gondwana flora of Vereeniging, Transvaal

A small assemblage of plant elements from the Lower Permian of Vereeniging, in the southern Transvaal, is described here. The assemblage is constituted of form-genera normally only found in the palaeo floristic regions of the northern hemisphere. The genera concerned are: Pecopteris (Asterotheca), Cladophlebis, Sphenophyllum and Psygmophyllum. The intermingling of these "Northern" elements with the Glossopteris flora of Vereeniging serves to illustrate the mixed nature of this flora. Reference is made to similar mixed Gondwana floras elsewhere in Africa and also in South America.
