Two spore species are newly described on the basis of exceptionally rich and singularly preserved material from the Moscow Basin (Visean); these are Tripartites (Trilobozonotriletes) incisotrilobus (Naumova), which is emended, and Murospora aurita (Waltz) Playford, the diagnosis of which is extended. The variability of these species and the dependence between the original spore structure and the state of preservation is shown.
