This article is a discussion of four detailed cross-sections that show correlations of the Triassic-Jurassic red beds in Wyoming. Individual beds have been recognized and traced over considerable areas, so that correlations can be satisfactorily made with the type localities of the Sundance formation in the Black Hills and of the Chugwater formation north of Cheyenne. It is concluded that the name Chugwater should only be used in the "restricted" manner suggested by Reeside; that the Jelm should be enlarged to include all Upper Triassic beds; and that the Nugget sand and overlying red beds belong in the Sundance formation.
