Abstract. The miospore genus Fragilipollenites Konyali in Agrali et al., 1965 is emended. The type species F. radiatus Konyali in Agrali el al., 1965 is also emended and a new species F. ganymedeii is described. The two species have a distinctive morphography which appears to be unique. The genus has been recorded sporadically from the Namurian and, more commonly, from the early Langsettian (Silesian) of on- and offshore Great Britain.
