He is a figure that would have been relatively forgotten, despite the various academic and scientific positions he held. [ 2 ] In the IPNI database it would appear with his wrong affiliation. He was a student of Lucas Mallada y Pueyo .
Professor of geology and paleontology at the Madrid School of Mining Engineers, he participated in various geological controversies, as well as discussions on taxonomy, nomenclature and identification of living organisms and fossils. [ 3 ]
He was a member of the Royal Spanish Society of Natural History and its president in 1906. In his defense to access the seat of member he read: Meaning and value of fossil species, as an argument in Geology for the classification and distinction of lands [ 4 ]
