We report structural, paleomagnetic, and magnetic fabric data for mid-Cretaceous plutons of the Peninsular Ranges batholith along a transect at ~30°N latitude. Four plutons in the western sector are characterized by characteristic magnetizations residing in magnetite. In this sector, El Milagro, Aguaje del Burro, La Zarza, and San Telmo plutons yield a combined paleopole at 82.1°N, 169.7°E (K = 137.6, A95 = 7.9°; n = 4–38 sites), which, rotated for closure of the Gulf of California, falls at 79.3°N, 179.5°E, and it is concordant with the North America reference pole. Plutons in the transition zone, between the eastern and...
