    Once again I'm here requesting your help with a translation I have for a class. I couldn't find a specific way to translate this, literally it should be Fossil Flora, but I'm not sure if it sounds right. Here is the text:

    En 1885 y basándose en la distribución de floras fósiles y de sedimentos de origen glacial, el geólogo suizo Suess propuso la existencia de un supercontinente que incluía India, África y Madagascar, posteriormente añadiendo a Australia y a Sudamérica.

    Thanks!! :)

    "fossil flora" is exactly right, but there's no need to capitalize it, Adriri.

    Yes, we say fossil flora or fossil plants.

    ..since the original text is academic in tone, I would go with "flora"
