In 1938 a few additional remains of fossil mammals were collected in the land-laid Cuyama beds of Apache Canyon, Ventura County, California, by Robert M. Leard of the California Institute of Technology. Among these was a fragmentary portion of a small carnivore skull, identified as belonging to a canid and representing a new genus. Since the relationships of the type were not definitely established, and remained uncertain, it was the intention of the writer to place the description on record in the hope that later investigation might yield additional facts. The war intervened, however, and rather than delay longer, the description is now published, especially since it may be found desirable to refer to the specimen in neogene faunal studies at present in progress.
