Abstract

Vertebrate fossils of Mammuthus meridionalis (Nesti) and Equus sp. cf. E. scotti Gidley occur at two sites in the capping alluvium of the highest strath terrace along the south side of Pumpkin Creek Valley, Nebraska. The presence of these two species supports the conclusion that the age of the capping sediments is probably early Irvingtonian (early Pleistocene).
