  • Habitat
    The Navajo Sandstone geologic formation where these species occur was deposited 190 to 136 million years ago during the Jurassic period. At that time this portion of western North America was an expansive desert with sand dunes reaching up to 2,200 feet thick. As subsequent geologic layers were deposited on top of the dunes, heat, pressure and water cemented the sand grains together. The overlying deposits eventually wore awa and exposed today's sandstone. Due to landscape position, vegetation varies from open pinyon-juniper woodlands to mixed desert scrub to sandy canyon bottoms.
