Abstract: Palaeomagnetic data from three localities of Upper Jurassic to Lower Cretaceous redbeds in Pahang and Johore, Peninsular Malaysia, indicate that those areas lay about 8°N of their present position and were rotating clockwise and moving north. Since Late Cretaceous, the Peninsula has rotated anticlockwise and moved south to its present position.
Vectors for the three localities are Maran D = 341, I = 21; Sungai Teka D =356, I =27; Kluang D = 333, I =21. A palaeomagnetic (north) pole for Central Peninsular Malaysia at Lat. 71°N, Long. 41°E is indicated.
