The "Six Foot" Assemblage:                                    After (p.39), AMOCO Seminar on Stratigraphic Principles.    

    The major constituents of this assemblage are almost like those of the Interior, but in it Transennella reaches flood proportions. The proliferation of this one form seems to occur only in waters over 6 feet deep, but it is not certain that depth is the primary control.
