A small collection of newly discovered plant macrofossils from lacustrine sediments at Gross Brukkaros (Namibia) is examined in order to attempt a biostratigraphical age bracketing. Two shoots of the conifer Brachyphyllum sp. indicate a Permian or, more likely, a post-Permian age, while the presence in the assemblage of a likely dicotyledonous leaflet, a probable angiospermous flower, and numerous carpofossils that are very similar to those of angiosperms suggest a Cretaceous or post-Cretaceous age. -Authors
