Seeds of Cucurbita pepo found among digesta of mastodon (Mammut americanum
) suggest extinct proboscideans as likely dispersal agents (Newsom et al., 1993).

The terrestrial faunal remains, which have largely been collected as allochthonous beach debris at Pauline Cove, are dominated by Yukon horse (Equus sp.), with fewer specimens of steppe bison (Bison priscus), proboscideans (Mammuthus primigenius and a single Mammut americanum
specimen), and other large and medium-sized mammals.
On 5 July 1992, while digging a trench for drainage tile in his Warren County cornfield, Larry Shafer encountered teeth and jawbone fragments of the American mastodont (Mammut americanum
Pilot studies to extract opal phytoliths from calculus on the molars of mammoth Mammuthus columbi and mastodon Mammut americanum
from Kansas suggest that phytoliths may reveal major dietary constituents.
These were the American mastodon (Mammut americanum
) and the Jefferson mammoth (Mammuthus jeffersoni).
In 1989 the skeleton of an American mastodon, Mammut americanum
, was unearthed in Newark, Ohio.
Lucas & Effinger (1991) and Lucas & Morgan (1997) reviewed the published records and accessible museum collections of mammoths (genus Mammuthus) and mastodonts (Mammut americanum
) from New Mexico, respectively (see also Harris 1993).
Records of mastodons Mammut americanum
have been published for only six localities in Arizona: Davidson Canyon, Pima County (MacDougal, 1908); Greenbush Draw, Cochise County (Haury et al., 1953); Saint Johns, Apache County (Saunders, 1970); Billings, Santa Cruz County (Minckley et al., 1997); Lehner Ranch, Cochise County (Mead et al., 1979); and M and M site, Yavapai County (Minckley et al., 1997).
San Pedro Sula: Lucas & Alvarado (1991a) documented a right M3 of the American mastodont, Mammut americanum
, from San Pedro Sula in northern Honduras.
Supporting evidence for the local presence of spruce in the central Yukon during the last glaciation is provided by fossil remains of the American mastodon (Mammut americanum
