Abstract

Of the nine Pleistocene localities reported on here, seven are loess. These contain such northern and mountain species as Discus cronkhitei, Pupilla blandi, Cionella lubrica f. exigua, Vallonia gracilicosta, and Pomatiopsis lapidaria which indicate that the climate was colder and wetter when these deposits were laid down than at present. The other two localities are silt deposits.
