|VNIGRI biostratigraphy contribution to the russian petroleum geology|
|The development of petroleum geology and the role of VNIGRI in the development and expansion of biostratigraphic and stratigraphic detailed studies of petroleum bearing basins are described. The first paleontological groups and laboratories (in former USSR) was created at VNIGRI before the WWII by paleontologists well-known in the country and abroad, later became a school not only for specialists of the VNIGRI, but even for many paleontologists of regional geological departments belonging to the whole USSR. This research group triggered and contributed to the development of detailed paleontologically based stratigraphic schemes concerning the Riphean and Phanerozoic sequenses of the several petroleum basins.
Keywords: paleontological school VNIGRI, petroleum geology, biostratigraphy, paleo-sedimentary basins.

|On the typification of LEPIDOPTERIS OTTONIS (GOPPERT) SCHIMPER, 1869 (PTERIDOSPERMAE, CYCADOFILICALES)|
|The results of research on clarifying the specific characteristics and typification of widespread in Late Triassic floras of Eurasia L. ottonis (Goppert) Schimper, typical for the genus Lepidopteris of that time, have been presented. The leaves remains of this genus were first found in the Upper Triassic deposits of Southern Germany. The holotype of the genus - L. Stuttgartiensis of the Middle Keuper (Upper Carney) deposits of the Stuttgart environs and the type specimens of the kind L. ottonis of the Upper Keuper (Rot) – Lower Jurassic of Franconia and the Rot of Silesia (western Poland) do not possess epidermal characteristics. The Lepidopteris leaves remains of the Franconia Rot deposits (Koburg mountain environs, Southern Germany), presented by Dr. Kelber, enable us to investigate the epidermal characteristics of L. ottonis (Goppert) Schimper leaves by specimens from type locality.
Key words: Southern Germany, strata-locality, Upper Triassic, Rot, holotype, type specimens, epidermal characteristics.

|Continental Jurassic stratigraphy of Irkutsk amphitheater|
|The article clarifies the taxonomic composition of taphoflora in scattered outcrops sections of Jurassic continental deposits within Irkutsk surrounding area, the right bank of Angara River, Cheremkhovsky and Azejsky coal pits where the formation included in exploration were first identified. For the first time the results of paleo-flora research has become the fundamental basis for substantiation of spatial ratio of deposits from scattered outcrops and stratigraphic position of previously established here stratigraphic units in the unified section of the Jurassic strata of the Irkutsk basin. The sequence of lithostratigraphic units in the coal-bearing strata section was adjusted along with their nomenclature and distribution within the stratotype area of the basin. Two phytostratigraphic alternating complex along the section were distinguished - Cheremkhovsky and Pre-Sayan. Preliminary comparative analysis of the taxonomic composition of Irkutsk taphoflora and taphoflora of Western Siberia has revealed their full identity, allowing to more confidently to justify the age of the phytostratigraphic plant complexes of continental Jurassic within Irkutsk basin and corresponding lithostratigraphic units - the end of the Early and the first half of the Middle Jurassic.
Keywords: Jurassic continental deposits, lithostratigraphic units, spatial relations, Lower and Middle Jurassic, taphoflora, phytostratigraphic complexes, Irkutsk coal basin.
