Chlamydotheca llanoensis n. sp.: a large ostracode from the latest Pleistocene of the Southern High plains, useful in correlation of streamside Paleo-Indian sites

  • Harold G. Pierce (a1)

Chlamydotheca llanoensis is a new species of freshwater ostracode found in latest Pleistocene (12,000–10,000 years B.P.) fluviatile sediments on the Southern High Plains. At the type locality (Lubbock Lake Archaeological Site, Lubbock County, Texas) and at two other localities, C. llanoensis was associated with streamside Paleo-Indian artifacts. This easily recognized species should be a useful guide fossil for correlation of strata of similar environment and age on the Southern High Plains.
