Abstract: Nine localities in the Robledo Mountains Member of the Hueco Formation in the Dona Ana Mountains of southern New Mexico produce nonmarine fossils of plants, vertebrate bone and tetrapod footprints. We describe and illustrate specimens of the following tetrapod ichnotaxa: Batrachichnus delicatulus (Lull), Batrachichnus sp., Limnopus sp., Hyloidichnus bifurcatus Gilmore,Dromopus agilis Marsh, Gilmoreichnus hermitanus (Gilmore), Gilmoreichnus? sp., Dimetropus d. D.leisnerianus (Geinitz), Dimetropus? sp., a new ichnogenus and indeterminate tetrapod footprints. Batrachichnus and Dromopus dominate the ichnofossil assemblages.
