Species: Cytherella saraballentae sp. nov., Cytherella semicatillus sp. nov., Paracypris bertelsae sp. nov., Paracypris imaguncula sp. nov., Argilloecia abnormalis sp. nov., Argilloecia concludus sp. nov., Argilloecia hydrodynamicus sp. nov., Bythoceratina cheleutos sp. nov., Phelocyprideis acardomesido sp. nov., Eucythere dinetos sp. nov., Krithe crepidus sp. nov., Cytheropteron hyperdictyon sp. nov., Cytheropteron bidentinos sp. nov., Cytheropteron translimitares sp. nov., Aversovalva glochinos sp. nov., Eucytherura stibaros sp. nov., Hemingwayella verrucosus sp. nov., Heinia prostratopleuricos sp. nov., Loxoconcha (s.l.) posterocosta sp. nov., Keijia circulodictyon sp. nov., Keijia kratistos sp. nov., Paramunseyella epaphroditus sp. nov., Munseyella costaevermiculatus sp. nov., Ameghinocythere archaios sp. nov., Aleisocythereis polikothonus sp. nov., Castillocythereis multicastrum sp. nov., Castillocythereis albertoriccardii sp. nov., Cythereis stratios sp. nov., Cythereis clibanarius sp. nov., Cythereis trajectiones sp. nov., Henryhowella (Wichmannella) praealtus sp. nov., Hysterocythereis paredros sp. nov., Hysterocythereis coinotes sp. nov., Hysterocythereis diversotuberculatus sp. nov., Orthrocosta decores sp. nov., Orthrocosta atopos sp. nov., Orthrocosta phantasia sp. nov. and Sthenarocythereis erymnos sp. nov.
