Occurrence of the rudistid Durania cornupastoris (Des Moulins, 1826) in the Upper Cretaceous Greenhorn Limestone in Colorado

Abstract:
A group of at least 28 conjoined individuals of Durania cornupastoris (Des Moulins, 1826) is described from the uppermost part of the Greenhorn Limestone near La Junta in southeastern Colorado. The specimens are from a bed of limestone concretions that contain the ammonite Collignoniceras woollgari (Mantell) of early middle Turonian age. A younger rudist, Durania maxima (Logan, 1898), is fairly abundant in the Santonian and lower Campanian part of the Niobrara Chalk in Kansas, but other rudists are scarce in the Western Interior. -from Authors
