Trilobites, brachiopods, microfossils, conodonts, middle Cambrian, biostratigraphy
The Parahio Formation of the Tethyan Himalaya has a long tradition of being late Cambrian in age based on trilobites, and later supported by the identification of conodonts and paraconodonts. However, re-evaluation of trilobites conclude the Parahio Formation to be of middle Cambrian age. This makes the report of conodonts and paraconodonts curious. Microfossils, brachiopods, and trilobites were used to asses this age disparity, thus, re-affirming the middle Cambrian age determination made in earlier studies. .
