West and colleagues reported the first paleontological fieldwork in the Nepal Siwaliks in 1975 (Sharma, 1984). , 1978). They reported fish, reptilian, and mammalian taxa from 17 localities, tentatively assigned to lower Siwalik. , 1991). The first evidence of a fossil hominoid from Nepal was an upper left molar of “Ramapithecus” (now assigned to Sivapithecus), reported by Munthe et al. (1983) from the Tinau Khola exposures north of Butwal. Initially, correlations of the Siwaliks of Nepal with the Siwaliks of India and Pakistan were hampered by the poor exposures and lack of paleontological data.

The medium‐sized browsers, such as Deinotherium, Propotamochoerus, Anthracotherium, Dorcabune, Protragocerus, Miotragocerus, Hipparion, and so on, are better represented in the Dera–Ranital assemblage, reflecting the presence of a dominant woodland habitat. The presence of Hipparion, which shows some cursorial adaptations in 20 rajan gaur its limb structure, might suggest a more open nature of the woodlands.

The interest in this primate reached its peak when it was considered as a forerunner of Plio‐Pleistocene hominids (Chopra, 1979; 1983; Chopra and Vasishat 1984; Conroy, 1972; Lewis, 1933; 1937a; 1937b; Prasad, 1982; Simons, 1961; 1964; 1976; Tattersall, 1975). However, subsequent investigators (Greenfield, 1979; Pilbeam, 1986) questioned the distinction between fossils labeled Ramapithecus and Sivapithecus; eventually, they synonymized it under Sivapithecus, where it stays until today. Ramnagar (Jammu and Kashmir state), Haritalyangar and Dera‐Ranital area (Himachal Pradesh state), upper Siwaliks east of Chandigarh (Haryana state), and Kalagarh area (Uttrakhand state) are among the most important fossil primate localities in South Asia.
