Abstract

A small collection of fossil vertebrates from the Slim Buttes Formation in Harding County, South Dakota, includes: Lepisosteus sp., Graptemys? sp., a trionychid turtle, Allognathosuchus sp. cf. A. riggsi, Epihippus intermedius, Teleodus thyboi n. sp., Colodon? cingulatus, Amynodontopsis bodei, an agriochoerid, and a leptotraguline. This assemblage is designated the Antelope Creek local fauna and is latest Eocene, Duchesnean, in age. Associated remains of Lepisosteus, the turtles, Allognathosuchus, and Amynodontopsis indicates that a permanently flowing stream was the environment of deposition.
