Abstract: 

A summary of the lycophytes species of the Dobrudzha Coalfield is given together with their stratigraphic ranges from the Bolsovian to the upper Westphalian D. Comparisons are made with the Westphalian D species of Southern Britain (South Wales and the Bristol and Somerset Coalfield) and Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. The closest similarity is between those of the Dobrudzha and Southern Britain coalfields.

Бари А. Томас, Янаки Тенчов. Верхневестфальская ликофитовая флора Добруджанского камонноугольного бассейна (Болгария) и сравнение с Южной Британией и Кейп Бретон (Канада). Обобщение ликофитовых видов из Добруджанского бассейна приведено пареллельно с данными об их стратиграфической позиции для времени с больсовиена до верхнего вестфаля D. Приведено сравнение с видами, установленными в вестфале А в Южной Британии (Южный Уэльс и каменноугольные поля Бристоль и Сомарсет), а также – в каменноугольном поле Кейп Бретон (Южна Скотия, Канада). Утановлено близкое сходство между Добруджанским и Южнобританским каменноугольными полями.
