摘要：Some new interesting fossil localities related to the investigation of Pliocene mammals in the N. China were discovered last year in Hohsien, Shansi. The district is in the middle reach of the river Fenho, about 170 km. south of Taiyuan, the capital city of Shansi province. The Pliocene deposits occur intermittently along the banks of the river and its tributaries. Teilhard de chardin, E. Licent and C. C. Young had reported the present of the lacustrine limestones at Hsintzu, Shunfu and Nantan, near the city of Hohsien about forty years ago. In 1965 Chow and the others discovered some fossil mammals from the lacustrine limestones at Nantan, and named the bed "Nantan formation``, considered it as late Pliocene in age based on the occurrence of Hipparion, Cervidae etc.
