Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
P. S. Herendeen and D. L. Dilcher 1991Fruits are 6.4-ca. 7.0 (estimated) cm long (x=6.7), 1.8 cm wide (excluding wing), with a continuous vascularized wing along the placental suture that is 5 mm wide. The wing width is nearly constant except for tapering at the ends. The fruits are thin and membranous. The fruit base and apex are obtuse to blunt and rounded. The fruits bear at least seven ovules. Ovules (seeds?) are 8 mm long and 3 mm wide. The venation of the fruit valves is poorly preserved. The wing venation consists of a poorly organized looping pattern.
