Kindgom Plantae, Phylum Pinophyta (Coniferophyta), Class Pinopsida, Order Pinales, Family Podocarpaceae


Width: 50 mm. Ellipsoidal leaf of Podozamites. Podozamites sp. is a extinct species, and a kind of coniferous tree with wide leaves. Podozamites sp. is considered as a related species of Nageia nagi, Family Podocarpaceae. Recovered from sandy mudstone of the early-middle Tithonian (Late Jurassic, 150 Ma) Kuzuryu Subgroup in the Tedori Group. The sedimentary environment of the Kuzuryu Subgroup is shallow marine. This outcrop has been thought as a part of the Bathonian-Callovian (Middle Jurassic, 165 Ma) Kaizara Formation, but recovered ammonoid fossils (Parapallasiceras sp.) suggests that it belongs to the Kurotodo Formation.
