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
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).
