• Material is in the J. M. Herrero collection (Galve).
•Mudstones contain Unionids, and vertebrate remains, including archosaurs and fish teeth. Channels contain fragments of vertebrates and plant remains, occasionally silicified. It is unclear whether these taxa are present at the Poyales Barranco Hondo locality.
