Title: Pennsylvanian Fusulinids from Southeastern Alaska: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Raymond C. Douglass

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Fusulinids of Middle Pennsylvanian age were obtained from 4 sections measured in the west-central part of Prince of Wales Island in southeastern Alaska. Three assemblages can be recognized in ascending order: (1) Millerella, Nankinella, and Pseudostaffella; (2) Nankinella and Fusulinella; and (3) Nankinella?, Fusulinella, and Fusulina. Other Foraminifera including Bradyina and Climacammina are present in several of the samples. The species present show some affinities with forms from Japan and a close relation with the faunas from the Fort St. James area in north-central British Columbia.
