Resumen:
Upper Paleozoic sphenopsids from western Gondwana are little known. New finds were made from the Upper Carboniferous of the San Juan province (Argentina). The specimens include vegetative and fertile characters that allow the definition of a new genus and species: Gondwanites subtilis. They are characterized by slender branches bearing whorls of very thin, simple or divided leaves. Simple fertile organs are borne in whorls just below the verticel of leaves. The presence of dichotomized leaves and bractless fertile organs in the new taxon suggests its probable primitive condition.Gondwanites subtilis.
