Chitinozoa like remains have been recorded from the Arangi Formation and Markundi Quartzite of Vindhyan Supergroup exposed near Dala and Agori villages in Son Valley, Mirzapur District. These remains closely resemble Melanocyrillium fimbriatum Bloeser, M. hexodiadema Bloeser, M. horodyskii Bloeser and Melanocyrillium sp. A preliminary analysis of their distribution in the strata shows that they may be morphologically diversified in the younger horizons.
