In the course of field investigations on the Mascall and Rattlesnake deposits and faunas of the John Day Basin of eastern Oregon, conducted by Chester Stock and C. L. Moody during 1916, fragmentary material of a hyaenarctid type was discovered at University of California collecting locality 3042. The specimen was described in 1925 by John C. Merriam, Chester Stock and C. L. Moody. Locality 3042 was visited again during the summer of 1926. Charles W. Merriam, a member of the party in search of mammalian remains at this locality, discovered several hyaenarctid teeth and fragments. Study of this new material has shown that it represents the individual found in 1916. The additional remains furnish valuable information relating to the Tertiary bears of North America.
