Mammalian fossils were first recovered from the Fruitland Formation by W. A. Clemens in the 1960 s ( Clemens, 1973). From the mid-1970s to the mid- 1980s large-scale screenwashing was carried out by E. H. Lindsay (University of Arizona), D. L. Wolberg (New Mexico Bureau of Mines and Mineral Resources) and J. K. Rigby Jr. (formerly of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and now at Notre Dame University). The majority of these collections have not been described, notably the University of Kansas specimens collected by Clemens and the nontherians from the Fossil Forest area under study by Wolberg and Rigby. Flynn (1986) described the more limited collections from the University of Arizona, and Rigby and Wolberg (1987) studied the therian mammals from the Fossil Forest area.
