A dispersed miospore assemblage comprising 32 genera and 49 species is described from a shale core sample. Two miospore genera, Iraqispora and Mosulipollenites, and 27 species are new. The material is from Atshan well in the Chia Zairi formation near Mosul in northern Iraq. The miospore flora described here is compared with comparable spore floras of Permian age. On the basis of this study, it is suggested that this spore composition corresponds to an Upper Permian age.
