Silicifled wood from the sands of the Woolwich Series (Landenian) at Herne Bay, Kent, is described as Edenoxylon aemulum sp. nov. (Anacardiaceae). The specimen closely resembles wood described from the Lower Eocene Green River Formation of Wyoming, U.S.A., as Edenoxylon parviareolatum Kruse. The character of the wood is essentially that of a tropical type with no strongly marked seasonal increments in its radial growth.
