  A well-preserved mandibular ramus having M2-3 is collected from Chinji formation of the Siwalik Hills of Pakistan. The fossil material is collected from the Chinji formation. The Chinji Formation is a type locality (Lat. 32°41’N: Long. 72°22’E) named after Chinji village situated in Chakwal district. The diagnostic features exhibited by the specimen reveal that it belongs to a large species of family Cervidae that is Cervus sivalensis. This dental material of the family Cervidae is reported from late Miocene of the Chinji formation (14.2-11.2 ma). Prior to this, the family Cervidae is reported from Pliocene to Pleistocene (Dhokpathan-Soan formations) only in the Siwaliks of Pakistan. This finding extends the range of the family Cervidae in the Siwaliks of Pakistan from Pleistocene to Miocene times and is a new clue for the evolutionary study of the family Cervidae.

  Four molars of Selenoportax vexillarius are collected from village Dhok Pathan of the Middle Siwaliks. Out of four, two belong to upper dentition and the rest of two belong to lower dentition. The enamel plications vary owing to the ecological conditions and this feature can not be used for the comparison. The median basal pillars and median ribs are well developed in the molars and the comparative study is made with the type specimens of the species. The third molar of the species is broken anteriorly.
