The present paper completes the systematic description of Eocene rodent material from the Sespe and Poway formations of southern California. Study of the Eocene rodent fauna of southern California was started by the author more than ten years ago. Work was nearly finished by 1939, but many things have prevented its completion until now, and this paper is essentially a continuation of those in Carnegie Institution of Washington Publication 514. Stratigraphic and other data have been given in previous papers by Chester Stock (1932, 1935) and by the author (1935, 1940a, 1940b, 1940c). In general, the tooth nomenclature used is that proposed by Wood and Wilson (1936) except where application of terms to minor structures is uncertain.
