The teleost fish Brychaetus and a dyrosaurid crocodilewere recognized among the aquatic vertebrates recently discovered in the northern area of the Titicaca lake (Bolivia). These fossils allow the presumption of a Paleocene age for the vertebrate bearing formation. The structural interpretation of this chronological data is discussed.
