Abstract: Triassic strata exposed at Carrizo Arroyo in the Lucero uplift of central New Mexico are assigned to the Middle Triassic Anton Chico Member ofthe Moenkopi Formation and the Upper Triassic Chinle Group (Zuni Mountains Formation and lower part of the San Pedro Arroyo Formation, including the Ojo Huelos Member). The Ojo Huelos Member of south-central New Mexico and the lower part of the Bluewater Creek Formation in west-central New Mexico represent an extensive lacustrine-palustrine depositional system that developed during early (Adamanian) deposition of part of the lower Chinle Group.
