Anatomically preserved Silurian ‘nematophytes’ from the Welsh Borderland (UK)( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Stratified charcoalified fragments of thalloid organisms with tripartite tissue construction have been isolated from the basal member of the Upper Silurian (upper Ludlow) Downton Castle Sandstone Formation, exposed near Ludlow, Shropshire (England) and are considered to have had fungal affinity. They are divided into two major groups. The more novel of these is characterized by a superficial cortex separated from a basal layer of interweaving hyphae by an intermediate zone of compressed indeterminate tissue and members are placed in a new taxon, Tristratothallus ludfordensis. In the second, the intermediate zone comprises hyphae arranged at right angles to the cortex (termed palisade). Some members resemble the tissue construction of Nematothallus described from the Lower Devonian (Lochkovian) of the Welsh Borderland and considered to belong to fungi, some of which were lichenized. A further type, which shows remains of polysporic asci, is thought to represent a fragment of an apothecium (a disc-shaped ascoma of an ascomycete) of a pezizomycete and is the earliest such record. Yet others are characterized by a perforate cortex with occasional protruding hyphae, tissue construction of which was also recorded in the Lower Devonian of the Welsh Borderland and considered to display fungal characteristics. Coalified ‘black patches’ are common on bedding surfaces throughout the latest Silurian and Early Devonian and frequently are associated with basal embryophytes and tracheophytes. Those reported here are the oldest known with three-dimensional organization, studied via scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and attributed to fungi, and include some ascomycetes. Similar encrustations occur in even earlier rocks and may have been important constituents of the cryptogamic ground cover, which is postulated to have preceded higher plant life on land

Contributions to the diversity in cryptogamic covers in the mid‐Palaeozoic: Nematothallus revisited( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Compression fossils from the Silurian and Devonian of southern Britain, composed of cuticles and tubes, were described by W. H. Lang as the genus Nematothallus and placed, with Prototaxites, in Nematophytales, related neither to algae nor tracheophytes. Dispersed cuticles of Nematothallus and perforated forms assigned to Cosmochlaina were frequently recovered in macerates, their affinities being unresolved. New collections from a Lochkovian locality in the Welsh Borderland permitted the reconstruction of the stratified thalli of these nematophytes; they comprise a superficial cortex (which produced the cuticles) overlying a palisade zone composed of septate, parallel tubes, presumed to be hyphae, and a basal zone comprising wefts of randomly interwoven hyphae. Excellent three dimensional preservation allows the erection of a new species of Nematothallus, N. williamii. A similar anatomy is seen in a new group of fossils with either circular incisions in the cortex or complete separation of thickened cortical cells, presumably comprising a developmental sequence. By their stratified organization the nematophytes differ from extant and extinct algae and bryophytes and the enigmatic Spongiophyton. A complex anatomy and septate tubes suggest affinity with lichenized fungi. Limited data support a fungal rather than embryophyte chemistry, but a photobiont is missing. Nematophytes, globally widespread in cryptogamic covers from mid‐Ordovician times, added to the biodiversity in early terrestrial ecosystems and enhanced chemical weathering. © 2013 The Linnean Society of London, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society, 2013, 173, 505–534
