Abstract

The large number of classifications of the type Cincinnatian (Ordovician) are to a great extent variations of a few fundamental concepts. Each of these elements is a least 40 years old and founded in the more rigid stratigraphic faiths of those times. Progress in the understanding of the Cincinnatian requires a new look from the standpoint of modern stratigraphic principles; further rearrangement of older concepts and named units is fruitless.
