On the Discovery of Some Plant Fossils from the Mt. Jolmo-Lungma Region, Southern Tibet, and Its Significance

Hsü Jen   

Abstract: Plant fossils, Glossopteris communis Feistm., Sphenopteris cf. hughesii (Feistm.) Arber and Pecopteris sp., are recorded from the district Ding-Ri, southern Tibet, at the locality WSluluo, about 30 km north to the Mount Jolmo Lungma of central Himalayas. The plant-bearing beds are correlated with the Raniganj Beds of the Damuda Division of South Asia. The geological age is assigned to early late Permian. The present paper supports the view claimed by B. Sahni (1938) that the northern coastline of the old Gondwana continent was roughly parallel to the. Main Himalayan arc and it was in this region up heaved with the late Tertiary mountain building movements.
