- ... Botryococcus, an important member of the planktonic algae, occurs in freshwater pools, lakes and occasionally in brackish-water lagoons, with wide distribution in tropical and temperate climate zones throughout the world. It is recognised as an oil-producing alga that is found in rock records from the Precambrian onwards. Here, this alga was retrieved from two different lignite mines of Rajasthan ...

- ... Muderongia staurota forms with long appendages at the distal end of the apical, lateral and antapical horns have been recovered from the Lower Cretaceous Gangapur Formation of Upper Gondwana sequence from the Chintalapudi Sub-Basin (India). The number of distal appendages reflects the number of plates forming the horns. We include these forms in the new species Muderongia gangapurensis sp. nov. Th ...
