Taurocusporites, a new form genus of trilete spores from the Lower Cretaceous of Maryland, is established with T. segmentatus, n. sp., as its type species. Three previously described species, Chomotriletes reduncus, C. , and C. auristriatus, all of Bolkhovitina, are assigned to the new genus. Taurocusporites reduncus (Bolkhovitina), n. comb., which occurs in the Maryland assemblage with T. segmentatus, n. sp., is discussed and illustrated. Chomotriletes (Naumova) ex Naumova is emended to include only alete spores.
