Summary The authors discovered and measured a relatively complete Paleozoic section (exposed continuously from the Lower Ordovician to Upper Permian) and collected plentiful fossils of many groups during geological investigations of the 1∶250000 Xainza County Sheet in the period of 2000-2002. It was the first time in Tibet that the representative element Tetragraptus (Paratetragraptus) approximatus of the graptolite zone at the lowermost part of the Early Ordovician Arenigian Stage and the typical elements Waagenophyllum indicum var. crassiseptatum and Liangshanophyllum streploseptatum Graptolithina of the Late Permian Wujiapingian coral fauna. Based on these, the Lower Ordovician Zakang Formation and Upper Permian Mujiu Co Formation were established. It not only improved the Paleozoic stratigraphic sequence in the area but also provided new information for the study of the Paleozoic tectonic movement and evolution of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
