Comments / pictures

In his initial reports, Barbour declared the Kariger mammoth a new species, Elephas maibeni. The name also honored museum donor Hector Maiben. A 1936 monograph by Osborn redescribed it as Archidiskodon imperator — generating the mammoth mascot’s Archie nickname. Archidiskodon has since been added to the Mammuthus columbi — Columbian mammoth — species, which ranged through the western United States and Central America during the Pleistocene epoch (2.5 million to 11,700 years ago).
