We describe surprisingly wealthy agnostoid faunas of that age from thick, well-exposed sections, one close to Paibi and one close to Wangcun, in northwestern Hunan Province, China. All collections are from the Huaqiao Formation, the definition of that is revised and its stratigraphic content material is multiplied. many of the fossils are good preserved in darkish, laminated, argillaceous carbonates that have been deposited in reduce slope environments. those are assigned to seventy six species and 33 genera. New species defined are Agnostus? babcocki, Ammagnostus? cryptus, Ammagnostus histus, Ammagnostus hunanensis, Ammagnostus wangcunensis, Baltagnostus? ambonus, Linguagnostus stenus, Lisogoragnostus hybus, Lisogoragnostus mictus, and Utagnostus songae. Species reassigned in a brand new regularly occurring blend are Ammagnostus laiwuensis (Lorenz, 1906), Glaberagnostus? cicer (Tullberg, 1880), Kormagnostus minutus (Schrank, 1975), and Pseudophalacroma scanense (Westergård, 1946).

The phases of the war reflect the manner in which it was fought and, in this case, could well be titled retreat, advance, stalemate, for these are their primary characteristics.

Japanese and American maps showed different tide levels, a matter of some importance when the plan was to invade from the sea on Landing Ship, Tank (LSTs). Frequently, cartographers used elevation for names of hills. Heights on the Korean map are given in meters, and many of these hills derived their name from their elevation. 28.
