ABSTRACT

The Early Perm aged radiolaria were found in a sequence of ridges interspersed with tuff mudstone from the Jalan Ladang Harmoni quarry, Pos Blau, Gua Musang. A total of 21 species of radiolaria have been identified, consisting of Pseudoalbaillella lomentaria Ishiga & Imoto, Pseudoalbaillella sakmarensis (Kozur), Pseudoalbaillella scalprata postscalprata Ishiga, Pseudoalbaillella cf. internata Wang, Pseudoalbaillella sp. A, Pseudoalbaillella sp. B, Hegleria mammilla (Sheng & Wang), Hegleria sp. A, Ruzhencevispongus rotundus Feng, Ruzhencevispongus girtyi Nazarov & Ormiston, Ruzhencevispongus triradiatus Wang, Latentifistula patagilaterala Nazarov & Ormiston, Latentifistula texana Nazarov & Ormiston, Latentifistula crux Nazarov & Ormiston, Latentibifistula triacanthophora Nazarov & Ormiston, Quinqueremis robusta Nazarov & Ormiston, Pseudotormentus kamigoriensis De Wever & Caridroit, Ormistonella robusta De Wever & Caridroit, Copicyntra sp., Copielintra sp., and Stigmosphaerostylus itsukaichiensis (Sashida & Tonishi). All species from this outcrop can be included in the Pseudoalbaillella lomentaria Gathering Zone representing the Early Sakmarian age, (Early Perm). This sequence also contains several fossil fragments of the ammonoid Agathiceras sp.
