Article
Borings filled with coprolites in silicified conifer woods from the Lower Cretaceous (Albian) of the Kachaike Formation, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina are described for the first time. Coprolites are approximately hexagonal in cross-section, like those produced by extant Kalotermitidae, and occur inside borings in the secondary xylem. The presence...
Article
Two silicified fossil woods from outcrops of the Cerro Fortaleza Formation (Campanian, Upper Cretaceous) in Los Hornos Hill, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina are described. Based on their anatomical characteristics, both specimens were assigned to a new species of the fossil genus Brachyoxylon Hollick and Jeffrey, B. patagonicum sp. nov. They are cha...
Article
Premise: The sooty molds are a globally distributed ecological group of ascomycetes with epiphyllous, saprotrophic habit, comprising several phylogenetically distant taxa (i.e., members of the classes Dothideomycetes and Eurotiomycetes). Their fossil record extends almost continuously back to the early Cretaceous; however, they are hypothesized to...
Article
Eocene paleofloras of Patagonia are diverse and increasingly known. A new assemblage of fossil wood has been recovered from Eocene sediments in Corcovado, western Argentinean Patagonia. The lithological succession (formerly Arroyo Lyn Formation sensu Pesce 1979) is correlated with the Huitrera Formation. The specimens were mostly found embedded in...
Article
Permineralized woods of Nothofagoxylon scalariforme from Miocene strata (Río Leona Formation) that crop out in the southwestern region of Santa Cruz Province, Argentina were studied. Six types of borings are described, filled with coprolites or homogeneous excrement masses (frass). Based on size, shape, orientation and content, the borings can be r...

Carlos Daniel Greppi, Juan L. García Massini, Roberto R. Pujana and Sergio A. Marenssi, May 2018. Fungal wood-decay strategies in Nothofagaceae woods from Miocene deposits in southern Patagonia, Argentina. Alcheringa xxx, xxx -xxx. Decayed woods from the Miocene, Rio Leona Formation, Santa Cruz, Argentina having simultaneous decay patterns consiste...
Article
Full-text available
A new megaflora composed of fossil woods and leaves is described. The bearing sediments overlie the Santa Cruz Formation (early Miocene), making it one of the youngest fossil megafloras described from southern Patagonia. The fossil woods is carbonized and found as clasts within a conglomerate. It includes a few specimens representing Araucariaceae...

Six pieces of fossil wood from the late Miocene of Northwestern Argentina (Salicas Formation) are described. They are all assigned to Prosopisinoxylon anciborae Martínez based on the presence of the following diagnostic characters: vessels of two distinct diameter classes, simple perforation plates, vestured pits, abundant axial parenchyma and wide...
Article
Full-text available
Coprolite-filled borings in fragments of nondecayed wood showing affinity with the mesquite-like morphogenus Prosopisinoxylon Martinez are described from Miocene strata from La Rioja, northwestern Argentina. Borings are excavated in the secondary xylem and contain numerous cylindrical coprolites with a characteristic hexagonal shape in cross sectio...
Article
Full-text available
Evidence of fungal activity expressed as typical decay patterns is described from silicified podocarpaceous wood from the Eocene of Patagonia, Argentina. Decay features consist of tracheids of the secondary xylem that are degraded, resulting in thin-celled, lignin-free, translucent, circular to elliptical areas, some of which have cells devoid of a...
