Lower and Middle Cambrian faunal succession in northwestern Vermont
Bulletin of the Geological Society of America (November 1954) 65 (11): 1033-1046

Abstract

The Gilman quartzite, Dunham dolomite, Monkton quartzite, and lower Parker slate all contain Lower Cambrian faunas, of which the trilobites Olenellus, Bonnia, Pagetides, Kootenia marcoui, and various ptychopariids predominate; among the brachiopods only Kutorgina and Nisusia festinata are common. The fauna of the Monkton is the correlative of the lower Parker fauna.
