Well preserved fish remains have been collected from the Fuller's Earth deposits of Lower Eocene ( Ypresian) age occuring not far from the village of Kapurdi and Bothia, district Barmer, Rajasthan. Three species, Scombraclunpea murlii sp. nov. (Clupeidae), Polimphyes misrai sp. nov. (Euzaphlegidae) and Ecoborthus singhi sp. nov. (Bothidae) are described. The fish recovered from the basal part of the Fuller's Earth sequence are shallow water marine forms and are associated with a variety of crustaceans. These deposits, mostly marine, are characterised by shallow water conditions and are intercalated with some non- marine sediments bearing plants.
