Coniferacean foliage referred to Brachyphyllum lorchii sp. nov. is described from the Jurassic Kidod Formation, recovered from core No. 1 of Kidod 2 well, drilled W of the Dead Sea, Israel. The new species is differentiated from other species of the genus Brachyphyllum mainly by the shape of its leaves. Dispersed pollen grains referable to Araucariacites australis Cookson and Callialasporites trilobatus (Balme), found in intimate association with the shoots, are thought to have been produced by this plant.
