An assemblage of fossil plants is here recorded from the Middle Devonian Beacon Heights Orthoquartzite and overlying Aztec Siltstone (Taylor Group), of the Cook Mountains and Skelton Névé regions, southern Victoria Land, Antarctica. The Beacon Heights Orthoquartzite exposed in the southern Cook Mountains yielded specimens of the lycopods Haplostigma lineare, Malanzania sp., and Archaeosigillaria sp. cf. A. caespitosa. The Aztec Siltstone flora contains Praeramunculus alternatiramus and H. lineare.
