The crustacean fauna of the Kinney clay pit in the Upper Pennsylvanian Madera Formation consists of a syncarid, Uronectes kinniensis n. sp. and a hoplocarid, Aenigmacaris minima n. sp. The associated plant and vertebrate biota suggests a lagoonal facies. The clay pit shrimp are reminiscent of the assemblage of the Upper Mississippian Heath Shale of Montana where a syncarid, Squillites spinosus Scott, 1938, occurs with another strange shrimp most likely related to Aenigmacaris, perhaps implying this syncarid-aenigmacarid association may be characteristic of some Late Paleozoic lagoon faunas.
