The recent redescription by Corbett and Banks (1974) of the geology of Lewis's type area of the Tyenna Valley for the Junee Group is commended. However, the introduction of correlations of rock sequences from localities over 24 km apart into a proposed definition of the Junee Group contravenes the Australian Code of Stratigraphic Nomenclature, and is therefore invalid. The correlations of the basal beds of the Junee Group discussed by Corbett and Banks are controversial.
