Preliminary observations of suspected fossil soil features found across a wide range of mulga Acacia aneura landscapes in semi-arid New South Wales and Queensland are described. Because of the radial symmetry and size of these features an hypothesis of early Holocene, possibly even late Pleistocene, construction by now-extinct ground-nesting or burrowing fauna is proposed.
