— a four-season live trapping study in the Whirlwind Valley, on the Lander and Eureka county lines near the Humboldt River, yielded two species previously unrecorded from both counties, Ammospermophihis leucurus and Peromijsciis tniei. Both records represent minimal airline range extension of 113 and 105 km. It is suggested that the distribution of A. lettctirus may include the entire northeastern quadrant of Nevada. The occurrence of P. triiei in sagebrush habitat 21 km from the nearest pinyon… Expand
