Abstract


The Palycepod fossils were collected from basal marly beds of the Chorgali Formation (locally known as Bhadrar Beds) of Early Eocene age, exposed at the Central Salt Range, Pakistan. For this, the exposed lithological section was measured and number of samples has been taken. Paleontological studies indicate nine genera Venus sp., Chama sp., Loxocardium sp., Cardilia sp., Megalodon sp., Mya sp., Ostrea sp., Spondylus sp. and Solemyia sp. of the pelycepod belonging to nine different families, five orders and three sub classes.
