Abstract. Miospore assemblages are described from a section of the Lower Limestone Shale and the lower part of the Black Rock Limestone at Maesbury in the eastern Mendips. Conodont evidence indicates the miospore assemblages are Middle to Upper Tournaisian (Tn2–Tn3) in age. The assemblages are compared to those obtained from other areas, particularly southern Ireland. One new species Discernisporites sullivanii is erected and one new spore type is described.
