Taxonomic list

• includes Redington Quarry (UALP 16; Bingham Ranch) Old Cabin Quarry (UALP 29), San Pedro Valley Quarry (UALP 7302), and Turtle Pocket (UALP 7201)
all small mammals are known from Old Cabin Quarry
many taxa actually described in Lindsay 1978 (see)
Jacobs cites dates of "5.21 to 6.25" Ma (K-Ar) on the Quiburis Fm.; Latorre et al. 1995 cite a date of "6.3 +/- 0.1 Ma" that appears to be based on correlation of site to chro C3An.2n by Lindsay et al. 1984, which equates with 6.27 - 6.57 Ma in time scale of Cande and Kent 1995
