Abstract: The discovery of fairly well-preserved plant fossils from a rock sequence exposed at Bukit Belah, Batu Pahat, Johor can be utilised in interpreting the age of the rocks. The revised age proposed in this paper is Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous. The identified plant fossils include Gleichenoides sp. and Ptilophyllum cf. pterophylloides Yokohama.
