Abstract

The early permian reef belt is distributed in the southern side of eastern Kunlun, north area of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The core-reef facies of thc reel extends from Tuosuo Lake to Huashixia. Lots of reef breccia was found at the southern slope of the mre-reef belt, and to the north of the reef belt there is back-reef limestone. Cacisponges, hydrozoa, bryozoa,Tabulozoa, Tubiphytes and red algae are the main frame-building organisms.Archaeolithoporella, laminated blue-green algaes,Tabulozoa andTubiphytes played a role of binding or encrustating. There are many kinds of epibiont in the mf, including brachiopod, gasterid, foraminifera, echinoderm and simple coral. The type and the characteristics of the reef-building organisms in eastern Kunlun and Animaqing are basically thr same as those in the south of Chi
