|Title||On fossil Mollusca from the island of Mandul, East-Borneo|
|Journal||Leidse Geologische Mededelingen|
|Abstract||This paper presents the results of the examination of a fairly big collection of mollusca from the island of Mandul, north of Tarakan, East-Borneo. The material was collected by Dr. Van Holst Pellekaan while investigating the geology of Mandul in the service of the “Bataafsche Petroleum Maatschappij” (Royal Dutch/Shell). It was sent to Prof. K. Martin of Leyden for closer examination, and afterwards was embodied into the collections of the Leyden Geological Museum.|
Prof. Martin recorded the results of his preliminary examination, which excluded the bivalves, in a report to the “Bataafsche”, dated 12th January 1917. He came to the conclusion that the fossils were of a Pliocene age.
