Abstract

Whitcliffian and Downtonian macroplants of rhyniophyte morphology are described from Capel Horeb Quarry, Powys, Wales. Both floras contain Hostinetla Stur, Cooksonia Lang and Steganotheca Edwards. They are briefly compared with others of similar age, and the contribution, particularly of the Whitcliffian assemblage, to our knowledge on the early colonisation of the land by vascular plants is discussed.
