B Mammals are described from three wash sites in a 4-5 meter thick interval of brown paleosols at the south end of Polecat bench in the northern bighorn Basin, Wyoming. The sites lie within the lower part of the Paleocene-Eocene carbon isotope excursion (Cie) and are intermediate stratigraphically between beds yielding late Clarkforkian and early Wasatchian mammals known previously. The first site, the SC-435 Shell Bed, is the lowest stratigraphically. The Shell Bed site yielded 56 identifiable… CONTINUE READING
