A petrified monocotyledonous wood from Mohgaon Kalan (M.P.) shows a number of characters with the form genus Palmoxylon. It differs from all known Indian species of this genus, and particularly in that the ventral sclerenchyma of each fibrovascular bundle is more developed than the dorsal and often unites with it to form a sclerenchyma ring. The specimen which may be referred to the "Cocos-like" palms of the combined scheme of Von Mohl and Stenzel has been designated Palmoxylon mahabalei.

It differs from all known Indian species of this genus, and particularly in that the ventral sclerenchyma of each fibrovascular bundle is more developed than the dorsal and often unites with it to form a sclerenchyma ring. The specimen which may be referred to the "Cocos-like" palms of the combined scheme of Von Mohl and Stenzel has been designated Palmoxylon mahabalei.
