"Plate 2, Figure 10"

"Organism consisting of a slender stem about 4 centimeters in length, arising from a cluster of numerous rootlike, irregular branches with small spore-like bodies, or tubercles, attached."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 116)

"This problematic organism presents the appearance of tuberculate rootlets attached to a stem. These characters, however, may or may not possess any diagnostic value, and the systematic relationships of the specimen can not be even inferred, satisfactorily, from them. It is described and figured in order that it may be identified in the event of similar or better-preserved specimens being discovered in the future."
