Based on an early geochronological study, the Lvhe coal mine strata were identified as late Miocene and belonging to the Xiaolongtan Formation. Previous research on the Lvhe sediments has led to the discovery of numerous fossils, such as woods, leaves, and fruits. Yet no fossil insects had been discovered so far from the succession.

In a study published in Review of Palaeobotany and Palynology, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences presented the first report of extensive arthropod and fungal traces in the Oligocene Lvhe flora and showed a new wood fossil record of Taxodioxylon in this region.
