The results of studies on Ostracoda from the La Despedida Formation are reported. The ostracodes are few in number, and fairly to well preserved. A total of 20 genera and 32 species has been identified and 9 species are questionably placed in their respective genera. Most caparaces are omamented, medium in size, moderately to strongly calcified and with anfidont hinge types. The ostracodes suggest a shallow marine environment with modera te energy levels and temperate to temperate-warm temperature.
