Nearly complete left lower jaw of Zalambdalestes lechei is described, from Toogreeg beds, locality of Toogreeg on the Gobi Desert. An occurrence of Z. lechei, (known so far only from the Djadokhta Fm.) in Toogreeg beds, gives support to an opinion that Toogreeg beds are a stratigraphic equivalent of the Djadokhta Fm., which is of ?late Santonian and/or ?early Campanian age.

Key words: Mesozoic mammals, Zalambdalestes, Late Cretaceous, Gobi Desert.
