The fungal spore genus Mediaverrunites Jarzen & Elsik 1986 from the Miocene of Mizoram, northeast India is herein validated. It is a monoaperturate fungal amerospore with verrucae along the equatorial region that either remain free, or merge to form an equatorial band. Two new species, Mediaverrunites elsikii and Mediaverrunites mulleri, are described; the latter is designated as the type. Mediaverrunites appears to have a reliable range base within the Miocene, and is an index for warm tropical paleoclimates.
