Abstract

We report on the stratigraphy of the ‘Upper Member’ of the middle Eocene Pondaung Formation at Paukkaung area (central Myanmar), with an emphasis on horizons that have yielded primate fossils. Deposits from the Paukkaung area of the Pondaung Formation have yielded many primate fossils at localities Pk1, Pk2, Pk3, and Pk5. The primate-bearing beds of these localities correspond to horizons of almost the same stratigraphic level. This was confirmed by tracking marker tuff and sandstone beds distributed in the Paukkaung area.<br>
