Article: Microbiological colonization and attack on some Carboniferous miospores
The paper describes Palynomorphites diversiformis gen. et sp. nov., a saprophytic organism thought to be related to the Fungi, and which is responsible for some part of the microbiological attack on Carboniferous miospores. The different organization of this attack on several groups of miospores of widely varied structural characteristics is described. The miospores were preserved in a chert band within the Upper Oil Shale Group of the Calciferous Sandstone Series of Scotland at a horizon considered on the evidence of goniatites to be of Upper Visean age.
