We investigated localities from which Eutamias atristriatus Bailey, 1913 (= Tamias minimus atristriatus) and Zapus luteus Miller, 1911 (= Zapus hudsonius luteus) were collected during a 1902 survey in the Sacramento Mountains, New Mexico, by the United States Biological Survey. The locality from which the holotype of Eutamias atristriatus was collected is restricted to James Canyon rather than the Rio Peñasco. Locality records indicate that the historical distribution of Zapus hudsonius luteus and its obligate wetland habitat were broader than currently realized.
