Fossil wood of the Mimosoideae from the early Paleocene of Patagonia, Argentina

B rea , M . , Z amuner , A . B . , M atheos , S . D . , I glesias , A. & Z ucol , A . F . , December, 2008. Fossil wood of the Mimosoideae from the early Paleocene of Patagonia, Argentina. Alcheringa 32 , 427-441. ISSN 0311-5518. An anatomically preserved mature stem from the Salamanca Formation (early Paleocene) at Palacio de Los Loros, central Patagonia, Argentina, is described and assigned to Paracacioxylon frenguellii sp. nov. The material was preserved by siliceous permineralization and shows features of the secondary xylem typical of subfamily Mimosoideae. This species represents the oldest record of the genus and of the Leguminosae along the western border of Gondwana, and is the world's second oldest record of Leguminosae wood. The species is characterized by ring-porous to semi-ring-porous vessels that are solitary, in multiples of 2-4 and clustered, simple perforation plates, alternate and vestured inter-vessel pitting, homocellular 1-6 seriate rays, tyloses, crystals and diffuse apotracheal, vasicentric paratracheal and confluent axial parenchyma. Paracacioxylon frenguellii has anatomical similarities to Acacia Miller. The presence of Paracacioxylon frenguellii associated with pulvinate leaves suggests that the legumes might have been a component of mesothermal forests developed along the western margin of the Golfo San Jorge Basin during the early Paleocene. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Alcheringa: An Australasian Journal of Palaeontology Taylor & Francis
