Abstract

In areas where there is no loess, talus deposits are often the only source of Pleistocene fossils. Such talus deposits are found only in limestone areas, and are exposed where road a railroad construction has opened them up. They are important in Kentucky and Tennessee in showing that such. species as Henderson i a occulta (Say) and Allogona profunda (Say) were once widely distributed here although they are not known to be living here at the present time.
