Asterophyllites (Asterophyllites equisetiformis)
Environment : coastal regions, river borders, floodplains
Climate : warm and humid
Asterophyillites is one of the many plants of the Carboniferous that used to grow up to gigantic proportions: as big as an average tree. The main stem was made of a material similar to bamboo. It was closely related to the Calamites (the tree-sized “horsetails” of the times), hence it’ “equisetiformis” name. Asterophyllites did not survive the Carboniferous, while the Equisetites could make it until today (although at the price of a significant reduction in size).
