    An extinct genus of straight-shelled nautiloids that lived from the Ordovician to the Silurian period. Most of their fossils are found in dense assemblages, meaning that they most likely experienced mass death after mating. They and their relatives can be easily confused with belemnites, but belemnites are usually smaller and are more closely. The plant shows a high degree of development in relation to its age. As mentioned, fossils of this plant are only found in Australia. The much-branched Psilophyton was a primitive Silurian land plant with xylem and phloem but no differentiation in root, stem or leaf.

Life in the Silurian Period. Although life was largely confined to the sea and other areas of permanent wetness (inland lakes and rivers) there was no shortage of life in the Silurian. It was an age before the coming of amphibians, dinosaurs, mammals and birds.
