Five marine biofacies based on conodont distributions are recognized for the Permian Phosphoria Formation and related rocks. They are: (1) facies with no conodonts, (2) facies with Hindeodus only, (3) facies with Hindeodus and (or) Neostreptognathodus and (or) Stepanovites and (or) Merrillina, (4) a transitional facies containing any of the components of biofacies 3 with either Neogondolella. Conodont distribution was fairly uniform and again dominated by neogondolellids (N. regale, N. bulgarica, N. shoshonensis, N. constricta, N. navicula and N. mombergensis). Ladinian progradation of a carbonate platform across the shelf resulted in a diversification of environments. None was hospitable to conodonts. CONODONTS OF THE BARNETT FORMATION OF TEXAS BY WILBERT H. HASS ABSTRACT The Barnett formation (Mississippian) of the Llano region, Texas, contains two conodont faunal zones. The upper of these two zones is believed to be restricted to that portion of the formation which herein is regarded as being of Meramec andCited by: A local lentil of conodont-bearing siliceous shale occurs in the basal part of the Goddard shale, and two lentils of conodont-bearing shale occur in the Sand Branch formation. The conodonts from all these lentils are described, and their illustrations assembled together with the previously known conodonts from the Barnett formation (by Roundy.

These two species occur in the lower beds of the Fitchville Formation in central Utah. The presence of conspecific conodonts in the same sequence as that found else-where confirms the widespread biostratigraphic value of the multiple Upper Devonian zonation which was first well defined in Germany. Conodont fossils preserving features of the soft tissues of both the head and trunk are known from only two places in the world. The Upper Ordovician Soom Shale of Cape Province, South Africa, has yielded a single specimen that displays structures of the head and of the anterior portion of the trunk (Figure 2), as well as more than one hundred specimens that preserve paired head structures. Conodont, minute toothlike fossil composed of the mineral apatite (calcium phosphate); conodonts are among the most frequently occurring fossils in marine sedimentary rocks of Paleozoic age. Between mm ( inch) and 6 mm in length, they are known as microfossils and come from rocks ranging in age from the Cambrian Period to the end of the Triassic Period. The Maple Mill Formation of Iowa contains an assemblage of sharks, fish and conodonts. Almost every fossil is a tooth or scale. At least a dozen species are known including several genera of shark. Shark scales are very common with dozens, even hundreds per sample. A rare sample as most fossils are vertebrate remains. Shark teeth are uncommon.

Appears in 5 books from Page 34 - I have considered the base of this formation as defined by the top of the Osage coal horizon." This paper dealt with the section near Topeka, Kans., where, at that time, the Osage coal was supposed to be represented by a . Previously published biostratigraphic zonations for the Honghuayuan Formation are reviewed, and revised on the basis of our knowledge of the entire conodont fauna, supporting the establishment of three biozones, Triangulodus bifidus, Serratognathus diversus, and Prioniodus honghuayanensis biozones in ascending order.
