 Peru’s Geological, Mining and Metallurgical Institute (Ingemmet) retrieved 465-million-year-old fossils, which were found in southeastern Puno region and then studied in Europe and Africa during 47 years.

César Chacaltana, geologist at Ingemmet, stated that these fossils are the oldest evidence of life in the country.

"These fossils are very important to science, they are the first living organisms in Peru, and prove the existence of the paleocontinent, which is different from the geography that we all know," he said.

Chacaltana said that the fossils also prove that Puno is the South American region that shows more evidence of older rocks containing signs of life.
