Dear Tony,

although I am not German I am here long enough to know these terms.

>     * *köpfchen* = literally "small head" (strange enough indeed also

>     * *Pleuridie / Pleuridien*: I could not find this word in

>     * *Kieselschiefer* = siliceous shale (a typical lithology of the
>       Lower Carboniferous)
>     * *saugnapfähnlich* = sucker-like
>     * *eingeschnürrt = constricted *
>     * *Ast oder Zweig* = in plants: axis (= branch) or twig
>     * *Fixationspunkte *= anchorage points

With best regards,
