Several species of Glossopteris leaves were collected from different localities. One of the specimens is a female fructification attached to Glossopteris leaf. It is Cistella type fructification and devoid of cuticle. It agrees with the characters of Plumstedia ovata (Surange and Chandra) Rigby. It is an addition to the Kamthi Flora of Maharashtra.
