"Sequoia rigida Heer, Die Kreide-Flora der arctischen Zone: Flora fossilis arctica, vol. 3, No.2, pp. 80, 91, 102, 128, pl. 22, figs 5g, 11a; pl. 25, fig. 6; pl. 27, figs. 8a, 9a, 9b, 10, 11, 12a, 13, 14, 1874." (Heer 1874)



From Hollick (1930) (p. 58)

"These fragmentary specimens are referred provisionally to this species. They agree in general characters with Heer's figures of specimens from the Kome and Atane beds of Greenland quite as satisfactorily as certain specimens from the Potomac group of Virginia and Maryland, referred to the species by Fontaine (1889) (p. 246, pl. 118, figs.3, 3a; pl. 121, figs. 2, 2a; pl. 130, figs. 3, 3a) and Berry (1911) (p. 447, pl. 78, fig. 8). It appears to be probable that in any critical revision of the genus a considerable rearrangement of this and other species of similar leaf characters (S. smittiana Heer, S. subulata Heer; etc.) would result."
