Sumario: Remains of selachians (sharks and rays) and other icthiolites have been collected from the Upper Mio- cene locality of San Gerardo of Limoncito. Three new records of fossil species of sharks are described for Central America and the Caribbean Region: Carcharhinus longimanus (Poey, 1861), Isogomphodon caneullensis (Cappetta, 1970) and Sphyrna arambourgi (Cappetta, 1970). The fauna of the Curré Formation is notable for the strong Tethisian affinity with the paleomediterranean faunas.
