Site data for southern Nevada have been gathered from the scientific literature and from the UTEP paleobiology collections. Only sites south of 37° N latitude are included.

Each site has a brief location description, many have comments, and a list of taxa recovered from the site is given. The "Literature" does not pretend to be complete, but should be sufficient to allow the reader to access further information. The literature source for each taxon is not given here since sources are available in the taxonomic accounts.

Where the taxonomy has changed, the currently accepted names are listed. Taxa represented in the UTEP Paleobiology Collection that have either not appeared in the literature or have appeared only in lists without being attributed are indicated by the UTEP acronym.

As with other portions of this work, many sites will be updated through time; the "Updates" pages will note when significant changes occur.
