Poacordaites

Poacordaites is a genus of extinct gymnosperms that lived during the Carboniferous period, approximately 359 to 299 million years ago. They were characterized by their long, narrow leaves that were arranged in a spiral pattern around the stem. These leaves were typically up to 30 cm long and 1 cm wide, with parallel veins running the length of the leaf. Fossilized Poacordaites leaves have been found in many parts of the world, including North America, Europe, and Asia. They are often used as index fossils for dating rocks from the Carboniferous period. The morphology of Poacordaites leaves suggests that they were adapted to a humid, tropical environment. They likely grew in dense forests alongside other gymnosperms and early ferns.
