A zone containing fairly abundant specimens of Hypseloconus (Monoplacophora) is recorded from the Potosi Formation of Missouri. Potosi specimens of Hypseloconus are identical to the problematical form Shelbyoceras bessemerense Ulrich, Foerste & Miller, 1943, from the Copper Ridge Dolomite of Alabama, and Shelbyoceras cf. bessemerense Ulrich, Foerste & Miller, 1943, from the Potosi Formation of Missouri. These forms are here referred to the Monoplacophora as Hypseloconus bessemerense. Another species of Shelbyoceras, S. buttsi Ulrich, Foerste & Miller, 1943 is considered a synonym of Hypseloconus bessemerense. These forms originally described as Shelbyoceras lack characteristics of cephalopods.
