Referee Wayne Barnes spotted the Puma stamping on the hands of two Wallabies - Adam Ashley-Cooper and Saia Faingaa - during a ruck late in the match, but let him off with a warning.
However, the citing commissioner believed the offence met the red-card threshold and ordered a hearing, at which Landajo pleaded guilty.
Australia won 54-17 to finish third behind New Zealand and South Africa with Argentina winless and last for the second successive season.
