In order to precisely establish the bio- and chronostratigraphic position of several levels of the Silurian–Devonian succession of Bolivia, with respect to the International Time Scale, additional Silurian and Devonian localities belonging to the Eastern Cordillera and the Interandean Zone areas have been recently revised and sampled, both for macrofossils and palynomorphs. Specifically, the localities are Ñuñumayani, and Muruhuta from the late Silurian–early Devonian time interval. Correlations with other fossiliferous localities are discussed, namely Huacallani and Rumicorral.
