<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> Lower Triassic conodonts are reported from limestones, interpreted as a possible submarine slump, exposed along the new Kuala Lipis -Gua Musang highway, northwest Pahang, Peninsular Malaysia. The co-occurrence of <i>Neospathodus triangularis</i> (Bender), <i>Platyvillosus costatus</i> (Staesch), <i>Neospathodus dieneri</i> Sweet and <i>Platyvillosus hamadai</i> Koike in the fauna indicates a Scythian (late Smithian) age. <i>Platyvillosus hamadai</i> is unknown from the Peri-Gondwana province and its occurrence in the fauna supports a pre-Early Triassic rifting of the Malay Peninsula from Gondwana.</p>
