FIGURE 1. Schematic stratigraphic column of type section Turtle Bluff Member on southwest flank of Cedar Mountain, Bridger Formation, showing relative stratigraphic positions of SDSNH, DMNS and UCM localities (along with the locality names in parentheses) that yielded the fossils described in this paper (reproduced from Kelly and Murphey, 2016a, figure 1). MPM Locality 2970 occurs on southwest flank of Sage Creek Mountain, and its approximate relative stratigraphic position is projected onto type section. Abbreviations are: Lithostr., lithostratigraphic; NALMA, North American Land Mammal age.
