Abstract

Conodonts have been secured in moderate abundance from the Stony Mountain formation at the type locality. Age of these strata has been previously established as Upper Ordovician on the basis of a varied megafauna. The conodonts are similar to others known from northern Manitoba, western and midwestern United States. Although there are some 30 species identified from the Stony Mountain, only 2 are described as new. Some are of long-ranging types; others verify correlation of this fauna with the Upper Ordovician of widely separated areas. In particular, representatives of Belodina, Cordylodus, Cyrtoniodus, Eoligonodina, Plegagnathus, and Pristognathus appear significant.
