flie Pacific coast belonging to the genus
Trigonia lias boon gathered together In
Dr. E. L. Packard and published under
the name of “The Trigoniae from the Pa
cific t’oast of North America.” as a
University publication. Eleven new spe
cies and varieties are described and fig
ured besides detailed descriptions and
many illustrations of all previously de
scribed species from the eoast. This
work is one of the first to be aided by
the research committee of the Univer
sity. The research was started early
in 1020 and its completion was made
possible by a grant from the committee.
Condon Specimens Studied.
The article is based on the study of a
large number of specimens belonging to
the Condon museum, some of which were
early collected by Dr. Thomas Condon.
Other specimens belonged to the Cana
dian and the ITnited States geological
surveys and to various Pacific coast in
The genus 1 rigonia is so named be
cause of its typical trigonal shape. It
is characteristic of the Jurassic and
Cretaceous, the latter periods of the
Age of Reptiles. This genus became ex
tinct everywhere except in the isolated
continent of Australia, at the close of
the Cretaceous during the time when
the great earth movements culminated in
the uplift of the Rocky mountains. This
restricted range in geologic time and the
highly ornamented character of these
clams makes them of great importance
as indicators of geologic horizons.
Asiatic Forms Resembled.
The oldest known West Coast Tri
gonia fauna occurs in the lower Juras
sic rocks of Taylorsville, California.
These species were cosmopolitan types
being closely related to forms then liv
ing in India and Western Europe. Later,
in the Jurassic, the species still show
close affinities with Asiatic forms, in
dicating that free migration was possible
along the shores of the shallow waters
bordering the Pacific and through a
great Mediterranean sea stretching
across southern Asia into southwestern
Europe. The Upper Cretaceous time
marks the epoch of maximum develop
ment of this group on this coast when
17 species and varieties were living in
waters then covering parts of California,
a large portion of Oregon, and lesser
areas to the northward. These species
unlike the Jurassic oi.es are not related
to the Indian and European special, in
dicating that earth movements had closed
the earlier migration routes and had op
ened others. These Chico West Coast
forms have, however, close auinuies with
the species from the Japanese Cretace

The committee also plans to have some
students designated as life guards, in

spectators falling into the race.
The various committees for the event
