Note: Monosulcites minimus Cookson is probably a synonym of L. ovatus since no monosulcate pollen types occur on the type slide of M. minimus; however, abundant specimens of L. ovatus occur (Mildenhall & Pocknall 1989 p. 37). Here arbitrarily distinguished from L. major on basis of size (L. major larger than 50 microns, L. ovatus less than 50 microns).

Natural affinity: Filicopsida: Aspleniaceae, Blechnaceae, Polypodiaceae, Schizaeaceae, etc.

NZ age range: Cretaceous to Neogene.

Brief description: Spore. Monolete. Outline in polar view oval. Psilate.
