The MVZ mammal collection is the fourth largest in the United States and the second largest such collection associated with a U.S. academic institution. It contains over 228,000 skin, skull, skeleton and fluid-preserved specimens. Over 33,700 are also represented by frozen or fluid preserved tissues. The collection includes 364 type specimens, making it the fourth largest collection of such specimens in the US. Karyotype (chromosome) preparations are available for ca. 4,000 rodent specimens. These consist of slides of chromosome preparations and, in some cases, black and white photos and/or 35 mm negatives of chromosome spreads. The mammal collection also houses large series of lab-raised specimens from research by Francis B. Sumner, Richard D. Sage, and William Z. Lidicker.

Location RemarksThis specimen was collected near their campsite in Phinney Canyon, or at coordinates 36.95461, -117.10899 (Wahguyhe Peak, Nev. 7.5 min USGS quad; NSF TOPO! and GoogleEarth, which are the 6700 ft contour on the canyon floor following the elevaton corrected by AH Miller in 1940. See RW Smith's field catalog for 12 June 1939. -- Johnson (July 29 entry into his 1941 journal) wrote: "drove on to Beatty then back to Springdale and westward 12 miles or so to the camp in the Grapevine Mountains where MVZ parties have worked last summer and in 1939." Dalquest makes no mention of this specimen. -- Coordinates slightly off - campsite was "at the end of the road... Our barometer and topo map show 6700 ft" (AH Miller, 31 May 20140 notes). Corrected coordinates at this contour would be 36.95461, -117.10899 (Wahguyhe Peak, Nev. 7.5 min USGS quad; NSF TOPO! and GoogleEarth) - Miller noted that this was "apparently where Ward Russell camped last year...although our elevation is 300 ft lower than worked out by Russell." -- Campsite was "at the end of the road... Our barometer and topo map show 6700 ft" (AH Miller, 31 May 20140 notes).
