Discussion:One plant apex with numerous leaves, 1.45-1.56 m , preservation fair. Terminal cells of lamellae are smooth, ovoid-conical, and thickened apically as viewed from the side. The awns are red-brown but eroded. Adequate leaf cross sections could not be cut owing to the soft texture of the fossils.
