This site provides access to data and images in the
University of California Museum of Paleontology
collections. We update taxonomy and check specimen identifications and associated information, but outdated names, mistaken identifications, and erroneous localities inevitably occur.
We urge investigators to verify all data by direct examination of the specimens,
and we appreciate notification of discrepancies
(firstname.lastname@example.org). Investigators are strongly encouraged to personally verify data before using it as a basis for publication.
UCMP data records may be used by individual researchers or research groups, but they
may not be repackaged, resold, or redistributed in any form without the express written consent of the UCMP director or designate.
If any of these records are used in an analysis or report, the provenance of the original data must be acknowledged and the UCMP notified. The University of California Museum of Paleontology and its staff are not responsible for damages, injury or loss due to the use of these data. Questions and comments about this site should be sent to
