Tamias aristus

Mammalia - Rodentia - Sciuridae

Taxonomy
Tamias aristus was named by Ray (1965) [closely compared to T. striatus by Kurten and Anderson 1980, and therefore unlikely to belong to Neotamias]. It is a 3D body fossil. Its type locality is Ladd's Quarry, which is in a Pleistocene fissure fill claystone/carbonate in Georgia.
