Two new species of Charliea Mamay (1990), originally described from the Upper Pennsylvanian Kinney Brick quarry east of Albuquerque, NM, have been collected from two additional localities in the western United States. Charliea n. sp. A is from the Lower Permian Red Tanks Member of the Madera Formation at the Carrizo Arroyo locality west of Albuquerque and C. n. sp. B from the lowermost Pennsylvanian Manning Canyon Shale in central Utah. Charliea was defined as having linear-oblong pinnae incised to form 2-4 nearly equal lobes, and having a rather broad, oblique attachment. The venation is simple, parallel, dichotomously branched and terminates in the lobed margins. Slight modifications in the generic diagnosis are necessary before these new species can be included in Charliea. The new species differ from the genotype C. manzanitana Mamay from the Kinney quarry in pinna shape and size, position of the greatest pinna width, and the smaller number of veins entering the lobes. Based on the ages of the new species, Charliea appears to have existed throughout the Pennsylvanian into the Lower Permian in the western United States.
