The Wissahickon Formation, the thickest and most extensive unit of the Glenarm Series, was divided into lithofacies several years ago. We suggest revision of two of these lithofacies and addition of another. We also suggest that the term lithofacies be shortened to facies. The added facies, the quartzite facies, is distinguished by metamorphosed orthoquartzites and protoquartzites. It corresponds in part to the former Peters Creek quartzite.
