AbstractA thin (3-25 cm), persistent conglomerate-sandstone unit occurs at the base of the transgressive systems tract of an Upper Pennsylvanian cyclothem below a transgressive limestone in outcrop and subsurface in SE Kansas and NE Oklahoma. It has an erosional base and a sharp top, and is composed of calcitic clasts, some shell fragments and quartz sand, and rare coal fragments. Clasts are rounded, equant-to-elongate, coarse sand-to-pebble sized, and moderately to well sorted. They are micritic to microsparitic or radial fibrous calcite grains and pisoids. Micritic and microsparitic clasts are heterogeneous and contain rounded to elongate moulds and radiating or concentric, spar or micrite-filled cracks. Pisoids have micrite cores and superficial calcite or clay rims. The clasts have similar texture and composition to the calcitic nodules and rhizoconcretions in underlying paleosols, and thus were probably derived from these soil nodules.
