Abstract

Cyadeoidea medullara and C. cleavelandii, two new species of the genus Cycadeoidea, have been recovered from the Lower Cretaceous Cedar Mountain Formation of Utah. They have been described in histologic detail and relationships with similar species are set forth. Monoecism and pollination mechanisms have been discussed in connection with C. medullara. This data contributes to our knowledge of the diverse composition of Lower Cretaceous floras in Utah.
