A small collection of limestone clasts from the Whiteout Conglomerate (Permo-Carboniferous), Ellsworth Mountains, was examined for archaeocyathids and other fossils. Thirty or more poorly preserved archaeocyathid specimens are here referred to Ajacicyathus sp., Gordonicyathus sp., Erismacoscinus cf. endutus, ?Graphoscyphia sp., and Paranacyathus cf. parvus, ?Dictyocyathus quadruplex, and Archaeocyathus sp.

Other fossils observed but not described include fragmentary specimens of sponge spicules, Chancelloria rosettes, trilobites, and brachiopods.

The limestone clasts were derived from a source area with exposed Lower Cambrian strata.
