In 1935 Stock and Bode called attention to the occurrence near Death Valley, California, of lower Oligocene mammal-bearing deposits designated by them the Titus Canyon formation. Subsequently, Stock (1936) described titanothere remains from this formation. Study of the remainder of the fauna was delayed because of the war. This investigation has now been completed. As a result the age of the Titus Canyon formation is defined within narrower limits of the lower Tertiary than has been done previously.
