The morphology of the profiles of 35 randomly selected sites in Muscatine County, Iowa, was studied. None of these sites qualified as type locations for the Muscatine series, based on current concepts and definitions of this series. Originally established in Muscatine County in 1916, 38.2 per cent of the soils of the county were classified in this series. Now, Muscatine County seems to be no longer a suitable type location for the Muscatine series.
