Taxonomic remark From Philippe & Bamford, 2008: Mesozoic in age, and not Tertiary as stated in error by Andrews (1970), the type species has an anatomy strikingly similar to that of Xenoxylon latiporosum Gothan (Hartig, 1848; Kräusel, 1919). Hartig (1848: 188) states that the genus is frequent in Braunschweig and Hildesheim areas (Germany), a region where Toarcian Posidonien-Schiffern frequently yield Xenoxylon sp.pl. (Philippe, 1995). Thus Trematoxylon is very probably an earlier taxonomical synonym for Xenoxylon Gothan. Fortunately for the stability of nomenclature the type is lost. Better not to be used before type species revision. [details]
