There were 470 captures of six small mammal species: Baiomys taylori (n = 191), Sigmodon hispidus (n = 159), Peromyscus maniculatus (n = 72), Reithrodontomys fulvescens (n = 41), Chaetodipus hispidus (n = 3) and Mus musculus (n = 4).
Otras dos especies, Chaetodipus hispidus y Perognathus flavus (la primera solo en la matriz con Vexillata como genero) comparten un patron similar, excepto porque no se las encuentra en la Peninsula de Baja California (BCa y Calif).

The other two heteromyids that were common in our study area, Chaetodipus hispidus and Perognathusflavus, are widely distributed in various grasslands but especially in those that are dry and relatively sparse (Paulson, 1988b; Best and Skupski, 1994).
Of the non-target species, Chaetodipus hispidus was the most common (10 captures), followed by Spermophilus tridecemlineatus (six captures), Neotoma micropus (four captures), and Peromyscus leucopus (two captures).
Four species (Sigmodon hispidus = hispid cotton rat, Tamias minimus = least chipmunk, Chaetodipus hispidus = hispid pocket mouse, and Perognathus flavus = silky pocket mouse) with fewer than five expected dual captures but one or more observed dual captures were not evaluated further.
Ten Chaetodipus hispidus were captured over the course of the trapping period.

Six species of rodents (216 individuals) were trapped during the study (Table 2): Peromyscus pectoralis (white-ankled mouse, n = 180), Sigmodon hispidus (hispid cotton rat, n = 29), Chaetodipus hispidus (hispid pocket mouse, n = 3), Reithrodontomys fulvescens (fulvous harvest mouse, n = 2), Peromyscus maniculatus (deer mouse, n = 1), and Baiomys taylori (pygmy mouse, n = 1).
