Facies analysis utilizing a conodont biostratigraphic framework is a powerful tool for evaluating genetic relationships of Osagean–basal Meramecian strata within the Ozark region (Arkansas–Missouri–Oklahoma) of the southern midcontinent. This investigation builds upon previous work cited herein, and suggests that some lithostratigraphic divisions, although useful in differentiating strata in a localized setting, may not be suitable for regional correlations within the Boone Group. High-resolution conodont biostratigraphy demonstrates the diachronous nature of lithostratigraphic divisions within the Boone Group, with both the Reeds Spring Formation and Bentonville Formation (Burlington–Keokuk) clearly becoming younger as they are traced from southwestern Missouri into northern Arkansas...
