Keywords: Fossil algal | fungal and riccia spores of sonda coal

In the present study rare fossil spores of algae fungi and bryophytes are described. They are represented by Botryococcus braunii Kuetz., Brateacoccus sp. cf. B. grandis Bischoff et Bold, Braeteacoccus minor (Chodat) Petrova, Geminella sp. cf. G. minor (Naegeli) Heering, Multicellaesporities elongatus (Shefy & Dilcher ,1971) var. perforatus Leghari et al. var. nov. and Riccia sp. cf. R. rosea Volk et Perold. These spores are indicative of paralic swamp vegetation associated with the deltoid region.
