II.—An Account of Some Marine Fossils Contained in Limestone Nodules Found on the Mekran Beach, off the Ormara Headland, Baluchistan

  • R. Bullen Newton

Through the kindness of Miss Caroline Birley, of Kensington, I have been privileged to examine a collection of fossil marine shells and other organisms in her possession, which occur in drabcoloured, gritty, and siliceous limestone nodules picked up on the beach off the Ormara Headland, facing the Mekran or Baluchistan coast, 130 miles west of Karachi, by Mr. F. W. Townsend, chief executive officer of the Submarine Telegraph Service in the North Indian Ocean.
