These deposits are common in northwestern of State of Ceará and correspond to the most Pleistocene fossil findings. This paper presents the description of two specimens of gomphotheres identified as Gomphotheriidae constituting an unprecedented record for the City of Irauçuba, Ceará, located 150 km from Fortaleza.
