UCMP V-2814 ( of the United States)

Also known as Camp Quarry

Where: Rio Arriba County, New Mexico (36.2° N, 106.6° W: paleocoordinates 5.3° N, 33.6° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Abo/Cutler Formation, Virgilian to Virgilian (303.4 - 298.9 Ma)

• All specimens appear to come from about the same stratigraphic level (38-36 m below top of the butte). Whether these beds are uppermost Carboniferous or lower Permian is a subject of controversy.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; red, argillaceous siltstone

• "soft brick-red clayey siltstone" (Langston, 1965 p. 6; 1966 p.691; Langston & Reisz, 1981 p. 74)

Size class: macrofossils

Collected by C. L. Camp, among others in 1928, 1934, 1935; reposited in the UCMP

Collection methods: bulk, surface (float),

• "Berman & Reisz reopened this quarry in 1979, but despite extensive digging by a team of five people, only a few scattered bone fragments were recovered. It appears that the site has been completeley exhausted" (Langston & Reisz, 1981 p. 74).

•Type of Rhiodenticulatus heatoni was "probably not found in the main bone level of the quarry, but rather as float on the slope of Loma Salazar a few feet away and presumably at or just above the quarry bone level." (Berman & Reisz, 1986).
