The Bunje Limestone Member of the Bond Formation (Simon, ''in'' Kosanke et al., 1960, p. 39).
Named for Bunje Station, Bond County.
The type section is about 1 mile south of Bunje Station, along Dry Fork (SE SW 7, 6N-4W).
It is underlain by an unnamed sandstone unit and is commonly about 40 feet above the Sorento Limestone. The Bunje is separated from the Flat Creek Coal above by a few feet of shale and underclay.
The Bunje is known only in the type locality, where it is generally less than 2 feet thick.
It is very fossiliferous, having a fauna dominated by large pelecypods, and the upper few inches is characterized by cone-in-cone structure.
