White River Astragalus

Recommended Posts

I found this little astragalus with PaleoProspectors in Wyoming in late July of this past summer. It was found during the day spent on a ranch with White River Formation Oligocene exposures. I was wondering what animal it belonged to. Leptomeryx? Poebrotherium? some sort of oreodont?

When I found individual ones, I just put them in a box along with the others, I am not able to ID it by itself, maybe @jpc can ID.

In general, I do the same.  It is artiodactyl, that much I can say.  My initial guess is that it is too small for most oreodonts.  Leptomeryx might be a good guess.
