Mount, Jack D.
MetadataShow full item record
The lower Cambrian Latham Shale of Hazzard (1954) crops out at localities <br />scattered widely throughout the Mojave Desert of southeastern California. Although the formation is highly fossiliferous, descriptive paleontologic documentation of its fauna is limited to a very few reports (Resser 1928; Crickmay 1933; Riccio 1952) dealing mainly with the abundant and diverse assemblage of trilobites. Other notes (Hazzard 1933, 1954; Mount 1974b, 1976) have touched on the stratigraphic allocation of some of the trilobite and non-trilobite taxa.
