Dear Rafael,

Mark Paine has recently published some photomicrographs of fossils in
ferricretes from western Victoria in a non-palaeontological paper (M.D.
Paine et al. 2004. Nature and extent of Pliocene strandlines i
southwestern Victoria and their applicaton to Late Neogene tectonics.
Australian Journal of Earth Sciences 51, 407-422).

Various fossil leaves from the Cainozoic of eastern Australia have been
described from ferricretes.

Can you be more specific about what you are looking for?
