About the Species

This specimen was collected from Huaylarco, 55 miles east-northeast of Arequipa, Depto. Arequipa, Peru by M. R. Koford on 5 May 1952. It was made available to The University of Texas High-Resolution X-ray CT Facility for scanning courtesy of the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, Berkeley. Funding for scanning was provided by an National Science Foundation Digital Libraries Initiative grant to Dr. Timothy Rowe of The University of Texas at Austin.

About this Specimen

This specimen was scanned by Matthew Colbert on 9 June 2005 along the coronal axis for a total of 885 slices. The skull was cropped out of the dataset of the entire specimen. Only the first 499 slices were used to reconstruct the head. Interslice spacing is 0.537 mm with a field of reconstruction of 55 mm.
