In 1920 Stock described the fragmentary remains of three mammalian types (Hypertragulus sp., Caenopus or Diceratherium, and a sciurid) from the Tecuya beds of Tecuya Canyon, California. Although the region was visited on several occasions during the past ten years, no additions were made to the vertebrate fauna until the summer of 1930, when a field party from the California Institute of Technology obtained materials of an oreodont and of a canid type. The Tecuya beds may be the correlative of at least a portion of the Sespe deposits of southern California, which they resemble in certain stratigraphic relationships and lithologic characteristics. Since the description of the very incomplete fauna from this locality, mammalian remains have been collected in the upper Sespe of South Mountain, Ventura County. In view of the importance of establishing more clearly the faunal relations of these horizons, any additions to the assemblages are especially welcome. Record is therefore made of the newly obtained specimens from the Tecuya.
