A new locality of Middle Jurassic flora was discovered near the town of Chapaevsk (Samara Volga region). Plant remains were found in the continental deposits of the Perevoloki and Gnilushka Formations, dated as the Bajocian. The flora comprises horsetails, ferns, ginkgophyts, and conifers. The assemblage studied is similar to that described by V.D. Prynada from the Bajocian-Bathonian deposits of the Samarskaja Luka, but the former is dominated by miroviaceous conifers, which were not found in the latter. The flora of the Chapaevsk locality needs further study, being of undoubted scientific and museum value for this region.
