The MVZ collection of amphibians and reptiles contains over 270,000 catalogued specimens. As of 8 April 2004, 123 of these have been designated holotypes, three are neotypes, three are syntypes, and 1793 are paratypes and paratopotypes. Most specimens are fluid-preserved, but the collection also contains skeletal preparations, sets of amphibian eggs and larvae, and several thousand specimens that have been cleared and stained. Other special collections include pineal organs, 800 sectioned heads, a series of dried anuran skins from California and Argentina, and stomach contents that have been removed from more than 3,000 predatory reptiles.

Location Remarksfrom 6 to 10 May Dixon and McQuesten were camped "at an old miners camp 3/4 of a mile below Hanaupah Spring", which he recorded as 4300 ft (p. 692, 6 May 1917 notes). Hanaupah Spring is in the South Fork of Hanaupah Canyon at coordinates 36.18794, -117.03116, elevation 4235 ft. The canyon bottom just below a mine visible on GoogleEarth and on the Telescope Peak 7.5 min USGS quad, and thus a likely spot for the camp Dixon mentions, is at approximately 36.18657, -117.02947, elevation 4000 ft (WGS84 datum). I would correct the locality of all specimens collected from 8-10 May to these coordinates and elevation. Dixon and McQuesten returned to this campsite on 15 May, and worked there until 17 May.
