抄録

A preliminary description is provided of a new assemblage of small, three-dimensional and charcoalified mesofossils from the Tamagawa Formation (late Turonian-middle Santonian; Upper Cretaceous) of the Kuji Group in northeastern Japan. The new mesofossils yield excellent structural details and include well-preserved circinate shoots of ferns together with conifer leafy-shoots, seeds and probable pollen cones, and variety of angiosperm fruits and seeds, including fruits of Cornales and seeds of Nymphaeales. The new mesofossil assemblage is complementary to the previously published macrofossil flora from the Kuji Group.
