MLP 00-III-5-1 is a distal end of a right tibiotarsus belonging to a fossil penguin. It comes from the Cerro Águila Conglomerate (53°50'14.85”S, 67°47'29.78”W) near Río Grande City, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. These beds overly sediments referable to the Cabo Peña Formation, probably similar in age to that of the Middle Miocene Carmen Silva Formation. The fossil described here is the only fossil penguin from this unit and represents the southernmost record of a Neogene penguin in South America.
