Abstract

Carbonaceous compressions from the Pridolian to middle Lochkovian Indian Point Formation in the Flatlands area of New Brunswick comprising a central axis with irregularly arranged unbranched appendages are assigned to Medusaegraptus mirabilis. This is the first report of intact thalli of this noncalcified macroalgal taxon from a locality outside of western New York. The biotic composition, stratigraphic context, and sedimentology of this occurrence suggest a shallow-marine depositional setting roughly comparable to that for the type material of Medusaegraptus mirabilis from Gasport, New York.
