Feeding damage on upper Permian plants from the Sukhona River

  • D. V. Vasilenko


Several types of feeding traces (galls, window and margin feeding) on the leaves of Pursongia (Peltaspermales) are described from the Severodvinian of the Sukhona River, northern European Russia. These types are named according to the formal classification developed for the traces of the interaction between land arthropods (insects) and plants.
