Abstract Based mainly on cuticular characters, Komlopteris Barbacka, gen. nov is separated from Pachypteris (sensu Doludenko, 1969, 1971). The new genus with its type species K. nordenskioeldii (Nathorst) comb. nov., and K. rotundata (Nathorst) comb. nov. and K. indica (Feistmantel) comb. nov. is described and compared to Pachypteris. Also its affinities are discussed.
