The genus Dandotiaspora Sah, Kar & Singh, 1971 is a dominant form in the Lower Eocene assemblages of India. It has been considered a marker fossil for Lower Eocene sediments. This paper deals with the taxonomic resolution of the various species described under this genus. A new approach dealing with the development of various morphographic characters within the genus, as envisaged from the present study, has been suggested.
