Abstract (in english)
   Senftenbergia plumosa (Artis) Bek and Pšenička is an abundant Carboniferous fern occuring in the Central and Western Bohemian Carboniferous basins of the Czech Republic. Its epidermal structures are described in detail for the first time. Sporangia with Raistrickia type spores are different from those of the previously described fertile specimens of S. plumosa from Bohemia, suggesting a large morphological variability of spores. The epidermal structures of S. plumosa are important for understanding the systematic position of this Carboniferous fern. Generally, the cuticle of S. plumosa is a more similar to that of living species of Marattiaceae than of Schizaeaceae. The epidermal cells of S. plumosa are very similar to those of the Tedelea glabra. It appears to confirm that S. plumosa is a member of the primitive Carboniferous fern family Tedeleaceae.
