Abstract: Ten radiolarian taxa were identified from chert blocks of the Bentong-Raub Suture Zone, exposed at a new road cut along the Bentong-Raub road. The assemblage is composed of Trilonche minax (Hinde), Trilonche davidi (Hinde), Trilonche vetusta Hinde, Trilonche cf. echinata (Hinde), Trilonche cf. parapalimbola Wang, Trilonche tretactinia (Foreman), Trilonche sp., Stigmosphaerostylus herculea (Foreman), Stigmosphaerostylus sp., and Helioentactinia sp. This assemblage represents an age of Famennian, Late Devonian.
