Cecil and Hayesville soils are Typic Normudults derived from acid crystalline rocks in the Piedmont Plateau and Southern Blue Ridge Soil Provinces, respectively. Morphological, chemical, and mineralogical properties were similar except for fine sand content and clay mineralogy. In general, the Hayesville series contained larger amounts of fine sand in the whole soil and more gibbsite and less kaolinite in the clay fraction than the Cecil series. Data obtained are insufficient to justify the two series as they are classified in Georgia.
