Having previously been considered a distinct formation, the Rio Limay Subgroup is now considered a member of the larger Neuquén Group, and itself contains several specific geological formations (from youngest to oldest):
- Cerro Lisandro Formation (late Cenomanian to early Turonian)
- Huincul Formation (late Cenomanian)
- Candeleros Formation (early Cenomanian)
