Abstract

The name Bryantodus inequalis, as applied to Devonian and Mississippian conodonts with arched blades and unequal denticles, has been used for at least three different species. Ulrich and Bassler (1926) applied the name to a conodont from the Devonian Rhinestreet Shale of New York. G. B. Holmes (1928) used it for a new species from the Chattanooga Shale of Alabama; B. scalenus is here proposed for Holmes's species. Branson and Mehl (1934) applied it to a new species from the Devonian Grassy Creek Shale of Missouri, but Ethington and Furnish (1962) consider this a synonym of B. dignatus Stauffer, 1938. Ulrich and Bassler (1926) first proposed Bryantodus germanus for a species from the Hardin Sandstone of Tennessee, but Holmes (1928) used it for a new species from the Chattanooga Shale; B. satellitis is here proposed for Holmes's species.
