Short summary
Due to the fact that knowledge of Mesozoic fish faunas of the Southern Hemisphere is still inadequate and the diversity and evolution of the Late Jurassic marine fishes of Argentina remain unclear, I study a fish recovered from the Upper Jurassic sediments of southwestern Argentina. The fish anatomy was studied comparatively with other related forms. As result, a new taxon was created. The new taxon implies a broader knowledge of the ichthyofaunas of Gondwana.
