Englewood Plain


Named by Gordon Willey for material from the Englewood Mound, 8So1, in Sarasota County, Florida. In Bullen (1967) the type is said to be "not a useful type, should be discarded". No one to our knowledge has used this name in Georgia, but it may occur in extreme southern Georgia. It probably is a type that can be ignored and is listed here simply for completeness.
