New fossil localities in the Takrouna Formation of northern Victoria Land yielded floras of Glossopteris and trace fossils. No megafossils assignable to an age younger than Permian occur in any northern Victoria Land Beacon exposures. Included among the Boggs Valley floral specimens is a compression fossil of a glossopterid reproductive structure. Although it is incompletely preserved, this organ appears similar to multiovulate strobilar structures of the strictoid type.
