46 samples were processed for a taxonomic ostracod study from the Lower- Middle Triassic (Smithian to Anisian) of South Tibet. Forty four species belonging to 15 genera are recognized. One genus and seven species are described as new: Bairdia jeancharlesi Forel n. sp., Bairdia letangae Forel n. sp., Bairdiacypris combeae Forel n. sp., Petasobairdia collini Forel n. sp., Hungarella tulongensis Crasquin n. sp., Triassicindivisia tibetinella Crasquin n. gen., n. sp.,Liuzhinia larmae Forel n. sp. The goal of this paper is to describe the new taxa as a preliminary step to palaeoenvironmental reconstruction.
