A late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous age for the Tacuarembó Formation is, as I understand, provisional. The Tacuarembó Formation used to be considered Middle Triassic-Early Jurassic, but was re-dated to a younger age by Perea et al. (2001) based on the record of _Priohybodus_ from this formation. The remains (teeth, spine) closely resembles those of the Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous hybodont _Priohybodus arambougi_, which is known from north Africa and the Arabian pensinsula.
