Abstract The first fossil crocodylian egg from the Upper Miocene the Chinji Formation of the Siwalik Group of Pakistan is reported here. It represents a new locality, and the first record of the order in the area. The specimen was uncovered in a fl uvial environment, and cannot be defined more accurately, because of the poor preservation of its structural levels, and lack of direct association to osseous remains.
