ACOSLA HOSPILALECHE, CAROLINA y CANLO, JHOANN. Comments about "Observations about the record of Paraptenodytes and Palaeospheniscus (Aves: Sphenisciformes) on the Bahia Inglesa Formation, Chile". Rev. chil. hist. nat. [online]. 2007, vol.80, n.2, pp. 261-264. ISSN 0716-078X. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-078X2007000200011.
We reply to the commentaries made by Chávez (2007) on this volume and regarding our recently published paper (Acosta Hospitaleche & Canto 2005). Despite a thorough discussion of our assignment of several Chilean remains, Chávez (2007) based his commentaries on the examination of a single photograph instead a revision of the materials directly. Apart from this issue, the data cited during his observations were not completely accurate as they were not updated, an aspects that lead his to wrong conclusions
