The male cone and pollen attributed to the conifer shoot Pseudofrenelopsis parceramosa (Fontaine) Watson is described from the Wealden (Berremian) of the Isle of Wight. Comparison is made with the several earlier described Classopollis-containing male cones and a new genus is proposed for such cones found unattached. Aspects of the palaeoecology of the Cheirolepidiaceae (Hirmeriellaceae) are discussed.
