Abstract: A total of seven quite well-preserved radiolarian species of Pseudoalbaillella genus were found in chert rock, situated at a road cut slope between the Gua Musang town and Cameron Highland, south west of Kelantan. These species are Permian age and was determined by the external skeleton morphological comparative study. Based on radiolarian composition and the association of Pseudoalbaillella with Hegleria mammilla (Sheng & Wang), the rock sequence can be assigned to Pseudoalbaillella globosa Assemblage Zone which represents Early Middle Permian (Roadian). The term and morphological characteristics of these radiolarian are described systematically in Malay Language.
