Abstract

Well preserved fossil fungal remains, both vegetative as well as reproductive structures, are described. These fungal remains were observed in the cortical tissue of arborescent calamite roots preserved in coal balls collected from the Upper Pennsylvanian near Berryville, Illinois, U.S.A. These fungi show close resemblance to the aquatic Phycomycetes such as Peronosporales and Chytridiales.
