Leaves of Terminalia (Combretaceae) and Daphnogene (Lauraceae) are described from the lower member of Lower Siwalik of Chatara- Barahakshetra area, eastern Nepal. The habit, habitat and present day distribution of the comparable extant taxa indicates the existence of tropical to sub-tropical evergreen to semi evergreen forest with humid climate in the area during the deposition of the Siwalik sediments.
