permocarbonian

300 MILLION YEAR OLD FOSSILIZED HORSETAIL [EQUISITOPSIDA]

The term ‘permocarbonian’ refers to time period[s] straddling 300 mya, and is used for events that begin in the Carboniferous period and continue into the Permian.

The horsetail here is a member of the plant kingdom, a close relative of the fern.
