By Frederick M. Swain

The geographic and stratigraphic distribution of fossil nonmarine Ostracoda within the usa are summarized during this publication, by way of diagnoses of the topic species, references to literature and 34 plates of illustrations.This paintings exhibits the nice variety and usability of this attention-grabbing classification of organisms that are small bivalved aquatic crustaceans that occupy either marine and nonmarine environments. Many are attribute of estuarine and different tidal habitats, yet just a couple of occupy hypersaline waters. One or types are present in rainy soils, or in leaf or flower cups in tropical rain forests. a couple of reside in caves and others are commensal in gills of fish and different aquatic animals. Micropaleontologists have chanced on their shells in lots of sorts of sedimentary rocks and feature used them for stratigraphic and paleoenvironmental interpretations.Their fairly fast premiums of evolution have made them beneficial in subsurface stratigraphy and their sensitivity to environmental alterations has supplied a way of spotting diversifications in rock facies. In nonmarine aquatic rocks they're mostly the main simply recoverable microfossils, and feature been prevalent in petroleum exploration, particularly in China, Russia, Brazil and the western usa.

The rather high degree of ornamental complexity of several of the Glenns Ferry species suggests an alkaline or saline lake, by comparison with other non-marine faunas. The levels of dissolved solids are suggested to have been in the hundreds, rather than thousands, ppm. Modern Pyramid Lake, Nevada, with approximately 4700 ppm dissolved solids supports only a small living ostracode population.

Near Adelia, northwest of Crawford, Sioux County, Nebraska, the Chadron is 143 to 209 feet (44-64 m) thick and consists of volcanic ash, silt and 23 sand. It underlies the Brule Formation and unconformably overlies the late Cretaceous Pierre Shale or the Lance Formation. A collection of non-marine Ostracoda obtained by Richard Konizeski at Helmsville, Nebraska, contained the following: Candona cf. F. Mtiller), C. cf. distincta Furtos, C. cf. havanaensis Staplin, C. cf. ohioensis Furtos, C. cf. poseyensis Staplin, C.

Many other localities also yielded Humboldt Ostracoda. In east-central Nevada, east of Sacramento Pass, White Pine County, a succession of lacustrine, fluvial and pyroclastic rocks, possibly as much as 7000 feet (2133 m) thick, was named the North Creek Formation by Young (1960). 2 my (middle Miocene). TABLE 1. The following freshwater ostracode species were identified in the Humboldt and related formations, northeastern Nevada.
