The present study on fossil plants comprising well preserved leaf impressions from the Siwalik Sediments (Formation - II) exposed near Darranga and Lakshmi river section in Bhutan is the first detailed and systemic work. The floral assemblage, recorded from the sediments is impoverished both in quality and quantity as constituted by 17 species belonging to 15 genera and 11 dicotyledonous families of Angiosperm. In the present assemblage a majority of taxa possess conspicuous drip tip. In some specimens the tips either got broken or indistinct due to bad preservation. Thus it shows that prevalence of tropical humid climate around Bhutan during Siwalik period.
