Juraella bifurcata BERNIER, 1984 (calcareous alga, Gymnocodiaceae?) is described from the Lower Cretaceous (Barremian) Tirgan Formation of the Kopet Dagh sedimentary basin, northeast Iran. Juraella bifurcata represents a rather poorly known alga reported so far only from the Upper Jurassic of SE France (type-locality) and Austria, and the Lower Cretaceous of Romania and south-Italy. The new findings reveal possible preserved cysts inside the enlarged swollen filaments indicating their role as reproductive organs. The genus Juraella can be well placed in the siphonous bryopsidalean green algae; family uncertain. The belonging to the Gymnocodiaceae is shortly discussed and considered doubtful.
