ABSTRACT

A well preserved first right lower molar from the Tertiary rocks of Pakistan is described from Padhri (Middle Siwaliks) District Jhelum, the Punjab province, Pakistan. It essentially differs from the known material of the genus Sivapanthera both in morphology and size. The name Sivapathera padhriensis is being proposed to this new addition.
