Palynological assemblages from the Al Khlata Formation (Oman) and the Unayzah Formation (Saudi Arabia) are correlated for the first time. Assemblages are also compared with those of Carboniferous-Permian glaciogene rocks in South America and Australia and with other assemblages in the Middle East. The assemblages of the upper part of the Amal-9 well and those of the studied intervals of the Amal-6 and Jufarah-1 (JFRH-1) wells are correlated with the upper part of Australian Stage 2 and the Lower Cristatisporites Subzone of the Chacoparana Basin, Argentina. Assemblages from the lower part of Amal-9 can be correlated with the lower part of Stage 2 (without Granulatisporites confluens) and possibly with the Potonieisporites-Lundbladispora Zone of the Chacoparana Basin.
