Summary:

Pulaski Formation of Late Ordovician age (Cincinnatian, Maysvillian to early Richmondian) is used in report. Nautiloid taxa of Maysvillian to early Richmondian strata on OH [Bull Fork Formation according to fig. 2] are also characteristic of "Lorraine fauna" of Foerste (1914). This fauna also is found in coeval Pulaski Formation in NY and Georgian Bay Formation in southern Ontario.
