The Fults Member of the Salem Limestone (Baxter, 1960a, p. 22-24).
Named for Fults, Monroe County.
The type section of the Fults Member is in the bluffs three-fourths of a mile northwest of the town of Fults (SE NE 20, 4S-10W), where the member is 29.4 feet thick.
The Fults Member is 25-34 feet thick in the outcrop area in Monroe and St. Clair Counties.
The Fults Member consists largely of thin- to medium-bedded, fine-grained, silty, cherty, more or less dolomitic limestone, but it contains beds of medium-grained limestone composed of fragmented fossils.
''Globoendothyra baileyi'' and ''Eoendothyranopsis spiroides'' are common.
