A new monotypic genus, Bagelopollis, is designated for oblate triporate pollen grains with pseudo-annuli composed of ektexinal sculpturing. Newly discovered occurrences in western Alabama and eastern Mississippi allow for a more detailed description of the type species, Bagelopollis verrucatus (Frederiksen 1988) comb. nov. et emend., and establishes its known geographic and geologic ranges from eastern Virginia to eastern Texas in upper-most Paleocene to lowermost Eocene coastal plain sediment. In this study, Bagelopollis verrucatus and its accompanying palynofloral community are described from lignite beds in the Upper Paleocene Tuscahoma Sand.
