Circoporoxylon kotaense, a new species of fossil wood, is systematically described from the Jurassic Kota Formation, in the Pranhita-Godavari Basin, India. A review of the distribution of global records revealed that the genus is widely distributed in both the northern and the southern hemispheres and favoured clarifications regarding its palaeobiogeography. The distribution of the genus, ranging from the Jurassic to the Miocene, indicates that the limiting factor throughout the species existence was climate. The analysis of fossils in a palaeogeographic context suggests that the extinct genus preferred warm temperate climates.
