Yuan and colleagues hypothesize that the Tethyan Himalaya terrane rifted from India after ~75 Ma, generating the North India Sea. They further document a new two-stage continental collision, first at ~61 Ma between the Lhasa and Tethyan Himalaya terranes, subsequently at ~53-48 Ma between the Tethyan Himalaya terrane and India, diachronously closing the North India Sea from west to east.
