Title: Lower Cretaceous Algae from South Texas: ABSTRACT

Author(s): J. Harlan Johnson

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Appreciable numbers of algae occur in the Lower Cretaceous limestones of reef and near reef facies. They include red algae belonging to the families Solenoporaceae, Permocalculus, and Corallinaceae, and numerous green algae of the family Dasycladaceae. The flora is quite similar to the Lower Cretaceous flora of the Mediterranean region, with identical or closely related species. A number of the genera are recorded for the first time in the western hemisphere.
