Conodont teeth are the earliest found in the fossil record. The evolution of mineralized tissues has been puzzling for more than a century. It has been hypothesized that the first mechanism of chordate tissue mineralization began either in the oral skeleton of conodont or the dermal skeleton of early agnathans.. The element array constituted a feeding apparatus that is radically different from Class: †Conodonta, Eichenberg The Middle Member of the Los Azules Formation contains conodonts of the P. serra Biozone and graptolites classified as belonging to the Hustedograptus teretiusculus Biozone (Tie 96). A conodont zonal scheme developed herein provides a means for correlations between both type sections and demonstrates that the Springerian overlaps with the underlying Chesterian and overlying Morrowan. the upper part of the Goddard Formation and Rod Club Member of the Springer Formation correlate with the Menard through the Grove Church. The conodonts Bergstroemognathus hubeiensis An, and Microzarcodina n. sp. (sensu Pyle and Barnes) are recorded for the first time in the Precordillera, and these .

The conodonts of the Barnett formation, that Roundy described in (pp. ) are from the upper faunal zone. His work was based, for the most part, on an examination of a limited amount of material and, except for the holotype of Gnathodus texanus, all of his figured specimens are fragments. Both are probably offshore Oxford Formation comprises sandy limestones and dolomites as the dominant lithologies.
