On the river bluffs in western Mississippi thick deposits of loess are frequently found. This loess in many places is highly fossiliferous. Although there are some records of loess fossils from the vicinity of Vicksburg and Natchez, the loess fauna of the state has been largely neglected. Recently the author had the opportunity to collect in the loess of Mississippi at a number of localities extending from near the northern border to near Fort Gibson in the southern part of the state.
