Mammals are represented by isolated multituberculate teeth assigned to three or four taxa (Badiola et al., 2008): one P4/5 and two M1 of the pinheirodontid taxon Cantalera abadi; two P5 from the eobaatarid Eobaatar sp.; one P1/3 and a p4 fragment of another taxon described as Plagiaulacidae or Eobaataridae gen.
The late Hauterivian-early Barremian multituberculate fossil assemblage of the La Cantalera site comprises some taxa (Pinheirodontidae and probably Plagiaulacidae) that are currently recorded in Western Europe (Spain, Portugal, Britain and France), and others (Eobaataridae) that have also been described in Asia.
