Abstract Three new glossopterid fructifications and a new Glossopteris leaf are described from Late Permian sediments of the southwest and central Bowen Basin, Queensland, Australia. Glossopteris bucklandensis sp. nov. and the female fructification Ottokaria inglisensis sp. nov. are described from the Black Alley Shale, Denison Trough. Cometia biloba gen. et sp. nov. and Senotheca kingii sp. nov. are instituted for new female fructifications from the Burngrove and Fair Hill Formations respectively on the Comet Platform. A collection of female fructifications from the Rangal Coal Measures, Comet Platform, is assigned to Dictyopteridium walkomii (Rigby) comb. nov. Numerous specimens of O. inglisensis and D. walkomii show that receptacle dimension ratios and tubercle (ovule attachment point) densities are useful taxonomic features, whereas wing and stalk vs. receptacle dimension ratios are less consistent. Exceptionally high tubercle densities on some small fructifications possibly reflect limitation of receptacle growth induced by local ecological conditions.
