A couple of examples I've recently come across:

In CASTLE OF DAYS, p. 225, he explicitly states his belief in Lamarckism.

In URTH OF THE NEW SUN there's a brief passage that seems most easily
explained Lamarckially (Lamarckianally?): "On Urth, the mystes know that
each continent has its own pattern for mankind, so that if people from one
shift their abode to another, they will in a short time--fifty generations
or so--come to resemble the original inhabitants." (73 of hardcover)
