In the Pocahontas area of southwestern Virginia and southern West Virginia, the MississippianPennsylvanian boundary, by definition and on the basis of paleontologic data, has been placed at the contact between the Bluestone and Pocahontas Formations (Hennen and Gawthrop, 1915; Cooper, 1961). This longstanding practice is recognized in the Pennsylvanian System stratotype section at the eastern edge of the basin where the Pocahontas attains its maximum thickness. However, some modification of this concept was necessitated by the wedging out to the northwest of the lower sandstone member or basal tongue of the Pocahontas Formation into the upper beds of the Bluestone.
