By Isabel van Waveren, of the expedition researching 280 million year old fossil forests in Sumatra, Indonesia:
We find a place that we did not discover before, with some beautiful seed ferns (Sphenopteris).
After some time, we again find interesting fossil plants.
This time, it is another seed fern, Taeniopteris; however, unfortunately the rock is so brittle that it is difficult to cut a decent piece out of it.
Somewhat later, we try our hammer again, and this time we find something really special.
We find Macralethopteris, a third seed fern, which up to now we had mainly found along the Merangin [river].
