What is it about?
Northern Mexico is characterized by numerous Late Cretaceous formations with abundant fossil woods. Here we described two new dicot woods, one corresponds to the genus Metcalfeoxylon, while the second one is a new fossil genus with features resembling Myrtales (?Myrtaceae). These two records provide new information about the floristic composition of the Late Cretaceous floras of northern Mexico and its relationship with those from southern US.
