    The striæ and characters of these specimens apparently agree with the form noted in some of the early papers as Orthisina umbraculum, Schloth, sp. (?) for which Meek and Hayden proposed the specific name O. multistriata (Proc. Acad. Nat. Sci. Phil., Vol. XI., p. 26).

    Professor Broadhead stated that at Marion, "Aviculopecten occidentalis and Fusulina cylindrica were the only fossils seen" (Trans. St. Louis Acad. Science, Vol. IV., Pt. III., p. 492). I have not yet seen Fusulina as high as the Marion horizon and Meek and Hayden did not find them above a thin limestone which they reported as thirty-five feet above the horizon of the Cottonwood limestone (Proc. Acad. Nat. Sci. Phil., Vol. XI., p. 17, No. 22), which would locate it in the lower part of the Neosho formation.
