Distribution Geographic
type locality: AMEGHINO, 1906 did not list the locality, only Patagonia, Argentinia [52];

Distribution of Echinorhinidae show google map

Distribution Strategraphy
Patagonia Formation or Monte León Formation, Miocene [1886]; Gaiman Formation, Miocene [13215]

Material
holotype; one tooth: MLP 77-XII-22-212, Museo de La Plata, La Plata, Argentina [13215];

Discussion
WELTON, 1979 [2517] guess that the holotype is lost so he consider the name nomen inquirendum. PFEIL, 1983 [1886] described the holotype after the original drewing and used personal comments of A. Cione, a redescription of this species would be useful

Remarks
valid after Pfeil (1983) p. 213 [1886];
