Abstract (in english)
   The plant assemblage represents a peat-forming phytocoenosis buried in situ by volcanic ash-fall as indicated by frequent occurrence of upright stems rooted in the underlying coal and large plant fragments occurring at the base of the tuff. It is a low-diversity herbaceous and subarborescent assemblage dominated by small ferns and calamites with subdominant lycopsids not taller than about 1-1.5 m. This unique herbaceous assemblage comprises four fern species (Kidstonia heracleensis, Dendraena pinnatilobata, Desmopteris alethopteroides and Sphenopteris cirrhifolia), Calamites sp. and the small lycopsid Spencerites leismanii.
