Ptilophyllum sp. and Zamites brevipennis are newly described from the middle Oxfordian Arimine Formation in the Arimine area, Toyama Prefecture, Central Japan. These two species characterize the vegetation of the Eurosinian paleophytogeographic province where a climate with dry season(s) prevailed. This finding, as well as the presence of a Kaizara Flora, suggests that Eurosinian-type vegetations continuously flourished during the late Bathonian to Oxfordian on the land of the Tetori Group. We also infer that Tetori-type floras first appeared during the Tithonian in the Tetori Group.
