During this survey, Chao Kingkoo and colleagues discovered fossil localities in the Triassic rocks in the western part of that province. These localities produced a fauna that was almost exclusively e ammonoid -- it was not only rich in individuals but also rich in genera and species. This monograph describes many new ammonoid genera and species. The volume is warmly inscribed in English on the front endpaper: “To Prof. Glenister, B. F. with the compliments of Chao Kingkoo, 9 Jan. 1960.” Name stamp of B. F. Glenister on the front cover.
