Abstract

Mesozoic strata of the Bauhinia Downs 1:250,000 Sheet area were examined during the 1960 field season when observations were made on lithology and palaeogeography, and Lower Cretaceous fossils were collected at fourteen localities. Results of field observations have been recorded in Skwarko (1961a, b) and these, together with results of detailed examinations of fossils and the close dating of strata provide material for the present paper. Of the fourteen assemblages of fossils listed from the Bauhinia Downs 1:250,000 Sheet area seven are marine, six non-marine and one inconclusive. They range in age from Neocomian to Aptian.
