Abstract

An extensive and detailed study of the otoliths from three localities of the Tullos Member of the Yazoo Clay in Caldwell Parish, was undertaken in order to classify and describe the upper Eocene otoliths. The classification of the otoliths was based mainly on Recent forms when extant genera were available for comparison. Eleven families and sixteen genera were identified and described through a systematic study of approximately 1600 otoliths from the Tullos Member of the Yazoo Clay.
