We have studied inclusive lepton production in e+e- annihilations into multihadrons in the energy range between √s=50 and 55 GeV using the VENUS detector at TRISTAN, KEK. Though MARK-J and JADE groups at PETRA found an excess of isolated muon events at √s≥46.3 GeV, we have not observed such an anomaly in muon nor in electron production. The observed rates of isolated leptons are consistent with the production and decay of five known quarks.
