In the present paper about thirty-six types of different spores and pollen have been described, which were recovered from some samples of lignites from Warkalli in Travancore, India. Out of these three areMonolites type of spores and oneTrilites type. Rest are all pollen grains classed underNonaperturites, Monocolpites, Tricolpites, Tetracolpites, Hexacolpites, Septacolpites, Octacolpites, Tricolporites, Tetracolporites, Pentacolporites, Hexacolporites, Septacolporites, Octacolporites, Triorites, Triporites andPolyporites.
Some of the spores have been compared withPolypodium vulgare, Blechnum spicant andSchizæa pennula, while some of the pollen grains have been compared with the following genera of living plants:Potamogeton, Borassus, Hamemelis, Myrsine, Cornus, Kadua, Nothocestrum, Erythrina, Celtis, Carpinus andOstrya.
Some of the types described in this paper have also been reported from other Tertiary deposits of India (Palana lignites, Intertrappean cherts of Mohgaon Kalan) and other countries (Dandot lignites and Oil shales of Saline series in Pakistan; Eocene beds of Erie Basin, Oil shales of Green River, and Fort Union coal of Montana in U.S.A., Brown coals of Europe).
