The Scottville Limestone Member of the Modesto Formation (Payne, 1942, p. 4).
Named for Scottville, Macoupin County.
The type section consists of exposures along Apple Creek near the town (W 1/2 SW 16, 12N-9W) (Wanless, 1956, p. 11).
The Scottville Limestone occurs in southwestern Illinois, where it is as much as 3 feet thick.
It is a light gray, fine-grained limestone.
The Scottville locally contains abundant ''Osagia'', phylloid algae, and a diverse open-marine fauna.
It is probably equivalent to part of the West Franklin Limestone of southeastern Illinois.
