The locality of Cerro la Bruja, Department of Ica, is situated in the marine Pisco Formation (Fig. 1). The age of the Pisco Formation ranges from the middle Miocene to early Pliocene (Muizon and DeVries 1985). The deposit of Cerro la Bruja is dated on biostratigraphic data to be of latest middle Miocene to earliest late Miocene age (13–11 Ma; Muizon 1988), and therefore represents the oldest deposit within the Pisco For− mation.
The Pisco Formation corresponds to a marine transgres− sion along the southern coast of Peru during the Neogene and is known for its abundant marine vertebrate fauna. Its geol− ogy and palaeoecology in the Sacaco area were studied by Muizon and DeVries (1985). The marine bird fauna is one of the richest known from the Neogene of South America. Be− side Cerro la Bruja other fossil penguin bearing localities in the Pisco Formation are: El Jahuay (ELJ), ca. 9 Ma, late Mio− cene; Aguada de Lomas (AGL), ca. 7–8 Ma (Muizon et al. 2003), late Miocene; Montemar (MTM), ca. 6 Ma, late Mio− cene; Sacaco Sud (SAS), ca. 5 Ma, early Pliocene; Sacaco (SAO), ca. 3.5 Ma, early Pliocene (datings from Muizon 1984, 1988; Muizon and DeVries 1985). For additional ver− tebrate faunas see Conclusions.
