Middle Tertiary volcaniclastic sedimentary units

Mostly syneruptive volcaniclastic sedimentary aprons. Lower units dominantly derived from volcanic highlands of andesitic to dacitic composition. Locally includes minor lavas and tuffs. Younger units (above and intertongued with Mogollon Group tuffs, Turp) include upper Bell Top Formation, South Crosby Peak Formation, and upper Spears Group units near Quemado. Older units (below and intertongued with Datil Group tuffs, Tlrp) include Palm Park, lower Bell Top, Espinaso and Pueblo Creek Formatios and lower Spears Group formations such as Rincon Windmill, Chavez Canyon, and Dog Springs.
