    Mid-Cretaceous rocks are widely distributed in the Western Interior (fig. 1). Rocks deposited in the central part of the seaway are chiefly fine grained and mostly shale and carbonates. In gen­ eral, these rocks thicken westward, where they become less calcareous and intertongue with ma­ rine and nonmarine sandy units. Toward the east.

In this contribution, we describe latest Cretaceous aquatic plant communities from the La Colonia Formation, Patagonia, Argentina, based on their taxonomic components and paleoecological attributes. The La Colonia Formation is a geological unit deposited during a Maastrichtian-Danian transgressive episode of the South Atlantic Ocean. This event resulted in the deposition of a .
