ACENOLAZA, Florencio G; CARLOROSI, Josefina  and  HEREDIA, Susana. Trace fossils and conodonts in the western slope of the Cuesta de Lipan, Purmamarca Departament, Jujuy. Rev. Asoc. Geol. Argent. [online]. 2010, vol.66, n.1-2, pp.164-170. ISSN 0004-4822.

Recent field works on the Lipan area provided Phycodes flabellum ichnofossil, this represent the first mention of this trace in Argentina and South America. This index species appears associated with conodonts. Erismodus cf. quadridactylus is the most representative species among the recovered conodonts and it is the only autochthonous conodont in the assemblage. E. cf. quadridactylus determines the age of the outcrop as well the icnoespecie Phycodes flabellum as late Darriwillian/early Sandbian.

Keywords : Phycodes flabellum; Erismodus cf. quadridactylus; Cuesta de Lipán; Purmamarca; Jujuy.
