Not illustrated. 1922 Excerpt: ...fragments of dicotyledonous leaves and a single species of Chara--a fresh-water alga--its only paleontologic contents known are numerous invertebrates of fresh-water types and a few brackish-water forms. On account of the supposed affinities of these invertebrates the beds containing them were at first, in. 1860, and for many years thereafter referred with little hesitation to the Tertiary. Then, as certain differences came to be detected, it was hinted by Meek and others that the age might possibly be latest Upper Cretaceous instead of Tertiary, and when the Laramie was promulgated the Bear River bed9 were immediately mapped by King and others--in this convenient catchall. They came later to be known as the "Bear River Laramie." In 1891 T. W. Stanton 88 was able to show that this formation, previously considered to be of Laramie or later age, is in reality intermediate between the Jurassic and the Colorado Cretaceous. Of its thirty or more species of invertebrates none have been found in the true Laramie. Thus another supposed Laramie area has been eliminated. The complete historical summary of opinion regarding the Bear River formation may be found in two papers by C. A. White,83 published in 1892 and 1895, to which the reader desiring further details is referred. PRESENT USAGE OF THE TERM LARAMIE.
