A medium to very large size, broad, stemmed point with straight to convex sides. Bases can be corner or side notched, double notched, knobbed, bifurcated or expanded. Some examples show parallel oblique flaking. All four sides are beveled and basal corners usually have tangs. Examples have been found in Arkansas with a steeply beveled edge on one side of each face (Transition form?). Found in caches with Turkeytail points in Mississippi on Benton sites. Bentons and Turkeytails as long as 16-3/4 inches were found together on this site and dated to about 4750 B.P.
