News articles in Spanish and other languages (including English at the
link below) are announcing the discovery of a major new Jurassic
fossil site in Santa Cruz Province in Argentina.  The preservation of
plants, insects, and other organisms in chert associated with volcanic
hot springs is said to be amazing. Presumably there will also be
vertebrate fossils. The find provides a detailed picture of a Jurassic
ecosystem.

Here is the link to the abstract of the paper from Ameghiniana:
