Based on Indian and international stratigraphic procedures, the name Parahio Formation is further shown to be the appropriate choice for a succession of cyclically stacked, burrow-bearing mudstone, sandstone, and thin carbonate deposits at or near the top of the Haimanta Group (sensu Bhargava and Bassi, 1998). We respond to Srikantia and Bhargava's (2018) criticism of our paper (Hughes et al., 2018) by addressing relevant concerns. As we did not claim the Parahio Valley section to be the type section for the Cambrian of India, their principal criticism of our paper is inapplicable.
