The stratigraphic sequence at Atoka, Oklahoma, named the “Atoka shale” by Taff and Adams (1900), is essentially unfossiliferous. The equivalent sequence in Texas was later described as the Lampasas Series (Cheney, 1940; Moore, 1944), in which the family Fusulinidae first appears. Thompson (1942) named the pre-Desmoinesian section in New Mexico the Derryan, but the 39 Morrowan was undifferentiated. The Atoka Formation was raised to series status by Spivey and Roberts (1946), and included strata between the top of the Morrowan Series and the base of the Hartshorne Formation in the overlying Desmoinesian Series.
They concluded that the Baldwin coal is early Westphalian A in age (Early Pennsylvanian). Dawson (1989) reported the presence of Endosporites globiformis in the Baldwin coal; however, Loboziak et al. (1984) and I did not observe that species, which first appears at the base of the Atokan and Westphalian B elsewhere. The samples of the Baldwin coal that I studied (Table 2) have a low diversity of spores. Although maceration 2793 is from the same site sampled by Loboziak et al. (1984), our lists of palynomorphs are considerably different; in fact, Savitrisporites nux and Laevigatosporites vulgaris are the only species in common between their samples and mine.
