Montana’s first county museum, its paleontological finds include a mounted skeleton of Anatotitan copei (one of only a few nearly complete skeletons of this species found), as well as a complete skull of Triceratops horridus (three horns), skull casts of Pachycepalosaurus wyomingensisi (dome head) and a Nannotyrannys lancesis (tiny Tyrannosaur)—all collected from the nearby Hell Creek.

Gilmoremys is known from five skulls, a mandible and an incomplete postcranial skeleton. The holotype of G. lancensis, USNMconsists of a nearly complete carapace and an isolated hyoplastral fragment, was first assigned to the species Aspideretes lancensis.

Many additional specimens were later discovered including cranial remains, and the material was assigned to its own genus, : Reptilia.
