Several leaf specimens from a locality in southern Tasmania are described. They are assigned to Coniopteris websterii sp.nov., Cladophlebis indica (Oldham & Morris) Sahni & Rao, Pachypteris sp. cf. indica (Oldham & Morris) Bose & Roy, Otozamites sp., Pterophyllum? sp. and Conites sp. The specimen of Olozamiles sp. is also partially petrified and, thus, gives some indication of its internal tissues. These genera and species suggest a mid-Mesozoic, rather than a Tertiary, age for this locality.
