In this contribution, a fossil tooth assemblage from the Bajo de la
Carpa Formation (Santonian, Upper Cretaceous) in a different
paleoenvironmental context from that recorded at the Neuquén city and
Paso Córdova localities (Patagonia, Argentina), is here presented. It
includes isolated teeth of Dipnoi, represented by the species
Ceratodus kaopen and Atlantoceratodus patagonicus; mesoeucrocodylian
isolated teeth referred to Peirosauridae; and isolated teeth of
Abelisauridae theropods and Titanosauria sauropods. The
Mesoeucrocodylia, Abelisauridae and Titanosauria taxa are consistent
with the fossil record of the region, represented by the Coloradoan
tetrapod assemblage of Santonian to early Campanian age. However, the
lungfish A. patagonicus represents the first occurrence for the Bajo
de la Carpa Formation, being this record the oldest one for this
taxon.
