A similar depositional model of a foreland-basin ramp with an offshore peloidal-skeletal bank was postulated for Lower Mississippian strata in southern Idaho and northern Utah (Chen and Webster, ) and would be, in part, correlative with the shallow-water facies of the Scott Peak Formation in east-central Idaho. If so, the shallow-water bank.

These particular horn corals come from the Middle Devonian ( to million years ago) limestones of the Skaneateles Formation, in the classic geologic sections of the Finger Lakes country of upstate New York.

Seven Lower to middle Middle Devon - ian zones, informally designated A–G, were recognised. Middle Devonian The Middle Devonian rocks of ENA contain many more corals and many more assemblages of corals in more diverse facies than do the Lower Devonian rocks.

These are represented in the rock record by 1) carbonate and sedimentary quartzite; 2) limestone and shale; 3) shale and chert; and 4) chert.
