Abstract: The present paper deals with the new record of fungal remains from the Subathu Formation exposed along Dogadda-Kotdwar road section in Dogadda, Uttarakhand. The assemblage is composed of 13 species assignable to 10 genera. The important genera are Callimothallus senii, Haplopeltis mucoris, Haplopeltis sp., Parmathyrites sp., Phragmothyrites eocaenicus, Plochmopeltinites sp., Spinosporonites saxenae, Spinosporonites angularis and Trichothyrites padappakkarensis. The presence of microthyriaceous fungi in dominance suggests that the region experienced a warm and humid climate during the course of sediment deposition with thick vegetation providing suitable substrates for the growth and proliferation of fungi. Their presence depicts the prevalence of moist tropical type of vegetation during deposition in the area. The present fungal assemblage is assigned Late Palaeocene-Middle Eocene age.
