This paper summarizes the facts as presented in the papers by Laudon and Curry and reviews the general interpretations made by previous writers concerning the relationships of the Iowa and New York upper Devonian. A comparison is made of the Kinderhook fauna of Iowa and the fauna of the Deva-Carboniferous beds of southwestern New York and comparative stratigraphic sections of the areas between Iowa and New York are presented. The conclusion is reached that the upper Chemung of New York interfingers with transition beds which are tentatively correlated with the Kinderhook-Chattanooga formations, but that later Mississippian rocks were not deposited in southwestern New York.
