Hello, and welcome to the Forum. :)

Unfortunately, I cannot find much information about fossil fishes in Ecuador.

Do you know what Formation it was found in?

Regards,

Thanks a lot for sharing this information piranha! Im a newbie trying to learn... so, maybe most of this material is new for me ;)

The fossils were found in Santa Elena, some kms southerly to Onzole and Canoa Formation.

I am uploading a map describing the zone where the fossils were found. It seems to be between Progreso and Villingota Formations. About the Miocene epoch.
