Baragwanathia Early Vascular Land Plant FossilDescription: This specimen shows the stems of two examples with the (negative) specimen on the right. There has been some dispute concerning the age because of that type of graptolite used in the age determination, one that persisted into the Early Devonian. However another location in Victoria was aged using a different graptolite which died out during the end Silurian, so I will use the earlier age for now. Whatever the case, it was (one) of the first plants to colonize the land.
