Clement seemed to prefer collecting tree trunk and woody material of Lepidodendron, Sigillaria, Stigmaria, and Calamites, over leafy material as only three specimens of leaves (Pecopteris and Neuropteris
) occur in the collection.

The equatorial flora that existed in the watery environments of the Carboniferous Period, for example, included Pteridosperms (Pecopteris, Neuropteris
, etc.) with their broad, serrated leaves like those of ferns, but capable of producing seeds.
At a later date, Hoffman (in Keferstein 1826) transferred these fossils to Neuropteris
scheuchzeri before Cleal et al.
Macrofloral associations are dominated by Autunia conferta, Culmitzschia frondosa, Taeniopteris fallax and Neuropteris
For example, large specimens of Neuropteris
rarinervis from the Westphalian of Germany display rather large fronds, up to 80 cm long, that are produced on narrow stems less than 3 cm in diameter.
