Glossopteris is the most common genus of an extinct family of seed-bearing (flowerless) plant called Glossopteridales which means 'tongue fern,' because the shape and form of its leaves looks like tongues. The
discovery of glossopteris fossils tell us that there was once a super continent
named Pangaea before it broke into different continents that we have today
such as Asia, Europe, Russia, Africa , North America, South America and Antarctica.
