10 species of benthic foraminifera including one new species have been identified from Eocene succession Tiyon Formation around Laki Range, Lower Indus Basin Sindh. Certain benthic species specified position to the super family Rotaliacea. On the basis of identified species the age allocate to Tiyon Formation is SBZ-14(Middle Lutetian) shallow benthic biozone.
