        The Hickory Sandstone Member of the Riley Formation is terrestrial to marine and represents the initial transgression of the Sauk II sequence followed by the Cap Mountain Limestone Member, consisting of a regressive succession of limestone, sandstone and siltstone, and, finally, the Lion Mountain Member (Barnes and Bell, ; McBride et al.

The lithostratigraphy and trilobite biostratigraphy of the Riley Formation at the Threadgill Creek section, Gillespie County, central Texas (modified from Palmer, ; Taylor et al., ). Faulting within the Lion Mountain Sandstone Member has repeated 10 ft (3 m) of the section.

In central TX, Llano uplift, the Lion Mountain sandstone member--formerly part of Cap Mountain formation--reassigned as top member of Riley formation (new). Overlies Cap Mountain formation and underlies Wilberns formation. Thickness is 24 ft. Consists of highly glauconitic sandstone which contains limestone lenses in lower part.

Comments: Upper two members of Riley Formation, Llano uplift, central Texas. Lion Mountain Sandstone and Cap Mountain Limestone, undivided. Lion Mountain Sandstone Member--quartzose greensand, glauconitic quartz-sandstone, impure limestone beds containing phosphatic brachiopods, and minor shale and siltstone; dusky-green to grayish-olive-green studded with white to yellowish-gray.
