Article: Ostracoda from the middle Eocene of Assam
A traverse across the middle Eocene part of the Sylhet Formation in the Deopani Region of Assam has yielded a well-preserved Tertiary ostracod fauna. Of the twenty-nine species, twenty-two are new, one has previously been recorded elsewhere and six are left under open nomenclature. A further specimen is left under open nomenclature as a probable new subspecies of one of the new species described here. Examination of their distribution enables three successive faunas to be recognized above a lower group of beds which has not yet yielded ostracods.
