Turbonilla atypha, Turbonilla abrupta, Turbonilla inciso, Turbonilla conradi, Turbonilla haycocki, Odostomia impressa y Peristichla agria are species that have not yet been surveyed in the living fauna of the adyacent coast. Several species previously known only from recent material are mentioned for the first time as fossils: Turbonilla atypha, Turbonilla abrupta, Turbonilla elongata, Turbonilla interrupta, Turbonilla incisa, Turbonilla pyrrha, Turbonilla conradi, Turbonilla haycocki, Turbonilla sanmatiensis, Odostomia impressa, Eulimella bahiensis y Peristichia agria.
