The Glossopteris arose in the Southern Hemisphere
around the beginning of the Permian Period (298.9 million
years ago). Their distribution across several, now detached, landmasses led Eduard
Suess, amongst others, to propose that the southern continents were once
amalgamated into a single supercontinent—Pangaea.
fossils tell us that the early positions of the continents were once combined
or amalgamated into a super continent---the Pangaea. The Glossopteris
turn out in the Southern Hemisphere around 298.9 million
years ago, the beginning of the Permian Period.
