In this paper, we present an updated revision of fossil vertebrates from the Chubut Group, Golfo San Jorge Basin, while also describing some new remains. Extensive exposures of both Lower and Upper Cretaceous sedimentary sequences are present in central Patagonia. These outcrops have, over the past several decades, yielded a varied vertebrate fauna, including fishes, turtles, crocodyliforms, pterosaurs, and dinosaurs, currently herein characterized and described. Although vertebrate diversity in the Chubut Group in central Patagonia is remarkable, the most abundant vertebrates recovered are dinosaurs. The Matasiete Formation (Hauterivian?–Albian) is markedly less prolific in terms of fossils discoveries than either the Bajo Barreal Formation (Cenomanian–early Turonian) or the recently recognized Lago Colhué Huapi Formation (Coniacian–Maastrichtian). The Bajo Barreal fauna is, at a high level, typical of coeval Gondwanan faunas. However, interestingly, several taxa occupy a basal position within their respective groups. The Lago Colhué Huapi Formation has produced a more derived vertebrate fauna, again similar to those from other Gondwanan regions. Finally, in a broad context, the new materials described augment our understanding of Cretaceous terrestrial vertebrate assemblage of central Patagonia and add to the generally meager record of vertebrate in the Cretaceous of the Southern Hemisphere.
