The specimen which is the subject of this paper is the same as the one noted by Professor Stuart Weller in his article on ''The Succession of Fossil Faunas in the Kinderhook Beds at Burlington, Iowa.” The specimen was collected in an argillaceous shale,-bed number 1 of the paper cited,-and was among the material illustrating the fauna of that bed submitted to Doctor Weller by Professor Calvin and Professor Udden. In Weller's paper, page 69, the specimen is referred with some doubt to Palaeopalaemon newberryi Whitfield, with a note that it "is probably the same crustacean that Whitfield identified from Cascade,'' now a part of the city of Burlington. Weller further comments that "it is by no means certain that the Burlington specimens are identical with the types of the species or even that they belong to the same genus.''
