Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
D. H. Erwin et al. 2011Arboreomorphs are a clade of fronds with bifoliate petaloids consisting of parallel primary branches which diverge from the central stalk at acute to right angles (45°–90°) and end at an outer margin. The branches are all joined together and possibly attached to a dorsal sheet. Primary branches are composed of teardrop- shaped secondary branches which are at right angle to the primary branches. The central stalk is large and prominent.
