Abstract: The identified palynomorph assemblage from a rock sequence which is exposed at Felda Keratong 8, southeastern part of Pahang, resembles the Paradoxa Assemblage and it is suggested that its age is late Lower Cretaceous (Barremian-Albian). The occurrence of monosuIcate pollen of Clavatipollenites hughesii indicates that the emergence of angiosperms has taken place during the deposition of the sediments in this area.

 

Abstrak: Himpunan palinomorf yang dikenal pasti dari jujukan batuan yang tersingkap di Felda Keratong 8, bahagian tenggara Pahang, mempunyai persamaan dengan Himpunan Paradoxa dan dicadangkan usianya sebagai akhir Kapur Awal (Barremian-Albian). Kehadiran polen jenis monosulkat Clavatipo/lenites hughesii menunjukkan kemunculan angiosperma semasa pengendapan sedimen berlaku di kawasan ini.
