Abstract:

Re-examination of the type material and micropreparations of "Thayeriorhizomoxylon chandrae Patil & Datar" (published as "T. chandraii"; Late Cretaceous, Maastrichtian) has revealed that the so-called branched rhizome is a petiolar base of the "Acrostichum type". The overall morpho-anatomy of the petiole plus root morphology are similar to that of Acrostichum intertrappeum. In light of above, T. chandrae is being realigned to A. intertrappeum Bonde & Kumaran.
