Descriptions of fossils of Eocene terrestrial mammals from the southeastern United States are rare, and particularly so in the Eocene sediments of Georgia. Here we describe a small collection of fossilized teeth and tooth fragments representing four mammalian taxa. The fossils were recovered by surface collecting overburden sediments and screen washing in situ Clinchfield Formation sediments exposed in an inactive kaolin mine, Hardie Mine, in Wilkinson County, Georgia. The Clinchfield Formation…

Diverse Turtle Fauna from the Late Eocene of Georgia Including the Oldest Records of Aquatic Testudinoids in Southeastern North America

The aquatic testUDinoids from the Hardie Mine site represent the oldest records from southeastern North America, a region that exhibits a high diversity of extant aquatic testudinoids.

Nebraskophis Holman from the Late Eocene of Georgia [USA], the oldest known North American colubrid snake

The presence of Nebraskophis in Georgia supports the hypothesis of an early Ce- nozoic biogeographic connection between the Great Plains and southeastern region of the United States for at least some early colubrids.
