pdf  Genus SCYTOPHYLLUM BОRNEMANN, 1856 (PTERIDOSPERMAE) – typing, systematic structure and stratigraphic significance
The history of distinguishing, specified diagnosis, systematic structure of a genus, and stratigraphic confinement in the stratigraphic and key sections of Europe of the genus Scytophyllum Bornemann, 1856, are provided. A revision of the fossil plant remains collection of the Timan-Pechora petroleum province stored in the Museum VNIGRI was carried out on the basis of newly made epidermal preparations; the systematic composition of the genus was updated, and previously and newly identified taxa were classified. The description of the 7 types of Scytophyllum with diagnoses and refined stratigraphic confinement is provided. For continental deposits of the Middle Triassic (Ladinian) of the European paleofitokhoriya the undoubted importance of stratigraphic genus Scytophyllum at the level of an ortotaxon is revealed.

Keywords: Middle Triassic, Ladinian, continental deposits, taxon, epidermal analysis, diagnosis, taxonomic composition, European paleofitohoriya, Timan-Pechora petroleum province.
