Abstract

A new strophalosiid, Megalosia chuluensis n. gen. and sp., from the Nisal Member, Senja Formation, in the Manang district north of Mt. Annapurna, north-central Nepal, is of early Dorashamian or Changhsingian (Late Permian) age. Wyndhamia circularis Chang, from slightly older faunas of south Tibet, might be congeneric.
