The presence of three associated dinosaurs is determined in Arroyo Morterito (Los Blanquitos Formation): Laplatasaurus sp., a Sauropoda indet. and a new theropod, Unquillosaurus ceibalii. Pucapristis branisi (Batoidea, Pristidae) and a Carnosauria indet. come from Aguas Calientes (Yacoraite Formation), both of which are represented only by a tooth each, The Upper Cretaceous age of Los Blanquitos and Yacoraite Formations is reaffirmed.
