A new species,Scarburgia baiyanghensis sp.nov. was reported from the Middle Jurassic Xishanyao Formation of Baiyanghe, the Junggar Basin in Xinjiang,northwestern China. The new species is characterized by fertile appendages (megasporophylls) arranged helically,each composed of a short stalk expanding into a pointed ovate scale,stalk attached to axis at a wide angle, curved up near the apex,a single rounded or ovate seed borne on upper surface of scale and partly covered by scale tissue. The characters show the new species is different from other known species of Scarburgia. It is known that very limited species of Scarburgia are reported in China and most of them are collected in the Early Cretaceous deposits. Therefore, the discovery of the present new species provides new fossil record in the Middle Jurassic age.
