In a recent study of silicified peat deposits collected from the Fremouw formation of the Beacon Supergroup in Antarctica, specimens which resemble extant members of the Trichomycetes were found. This formation is considered to contain fossils of Early-Middle Triassic age. Light microscope slides were prepared from cellulose acetate peels of rock surfaces which had been etched with hydrofluoric acid. -from Authors
