Abstract: The rock successions exposed at several road-cuts along the road connecting Triang and Paloh Hinai in the central part of Pahang yield a distinct palynomorph assemblage, which is dominated by fairly-well preserved significant palynomorph species namely Cicatricosisporites australiensis, C. ludbrookiae, Biretisporites eneabbaensis and Baculatisporites comaumensis. Based on the occurrence of the total palynomorphs, the identified assemblage shows some similarities with that of Stylosus Assemblage and the succeeding Speciosus Assemblage of Lower Cretaceous age. The presence of certain stratigraphically significant palynomorph permits the assignment of chronostratigraphic age of this assemblage to the lowest Speciosus Assemblage of Valanginian- Hauterivian (Neocomian).

 

Abstrak: Jujukan batuan yang tersingkap di beberapa potongan jalan yang menghubungkan Triang dan Paloh Hinai di bahagian tengah Pahang mengandungi himpunan palinomorf yang didominasi oleh Cicatricosisporites australiensis, C.ludbrookiae, Biretisporites eneabbaensis dan Baculatisporites comaumensis yang terawet hampir sempurna. Berdasarkan kepada kehadiran keseluruhan palinomorf, himpunan yang dikenal pasti menunjukkan persamaan dengan Himpunan Stylosus dan Himpunan Speciosus yang menindih di bahagian atasnya berusia Kapur Awal. Kehadiran palinomorf yang khusus pada pada usia stratigrafi tertentu telah membolehkan usia himpunan ini diletakkan di bahagian terbawah Himpunan Speciosus yang berusia Valanginian- Hauterivian (Neocomian).
