Abstract

A Pleistocene fauna from the Foley gravel pits on a low terrace of the Wichita River near Wichita Falls, Texas, is discussed and assigned to the time of the Wisconsin glaciation. The fauna includes: Lepisosteus? sp., Cynomys ludovicianus (Ord), Geomys cf. bursarius (Shaw), Sylvilagus cf. audubonii (Baird), Taxidea taxus (Schreber), Mammuthus sp., Camelops hesternus (Leidy), Bison (Platycerobison) chaneyi Cook, Equus cf. leidyi Hay. The fauna is similar to the Berclair terrace-fauna of S.-central Texas and indicates a somewhat dryer climate than is now present in the Wichita Falls area.
