Several new seed bearing structures were collected in the Mecsek Mountains (Southern Hungary). Their structure undoubtedly shows affinity to the Caytoniales, however they differ from the hitherto known female reproductive organ, Caytonia. Good preservation of the cuticles, isolated both from the seed-bearing cupules and seeds in situ, allowed detailed examination of their position and structure. The results obtained have confirmed our knowledge of Caytoniales and have further provided new information on the structural variability of reproductive organs in Caytoniales. For the Hungarian material a new genus and species, Reymanownaea kvacekii is proposed.
