An early Eocene florule from central Texas

Professional Paper 132- E



In 1916 I described a florule collected by Alexander Deussen and L. W. Stephenson at the town of Earle, in Bexar County, Tex. This florule was tentatively considered of Midway age by these geologists, and examination of the fossil plants tended to confirm this assignment, particularly because of their lack of harmony with the extensive Wilcox flora described in the volume cited above and because of their resemblance to the described floras from the Raton and Denver formations of Colorado and New Mexico.
