A new species of Dyrosaurus (Crocodylomorpha, Dyrosauridae) from the early Eocene of Morocco: phylogenetic implications
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis shows the dyrosaurids as the sister taxon of pholidosaurids, which include Elosuchus, Sarcosuchu, Terminonaris and Pholidosaurus, and the thalattosuchians, and a non-monophyletic group; however, phylogenetic problems remain with respect to longirostrine clade, and more attention should be paid to resolving their evolutionary relationships amongst the crocodyliforms.
A new azhdarchid pterosaur from the Late Cretaceous phosphates of Morocco
Abstract A large azhdarchid pterosaur is described from the Late Maastrichtian phosphatic deposits of the Oulad Abdoun Basin, near Khouribga (central Morocco). The material consists of five closely
A new species of Halisaurus from the Late Cretaceous phosphates of Morocco, and the phylogenetical relationships of the Halisaurinae (Squamata: Mosasauridae)
A new species of the basal mosasaurid Halisaurus from the Late Cretaceous (Late Maastrichtian) of the Oulad Abdoun Phosphate Basin of Morocco is described on the basis of both cranial and postcranial
A SHORT‐SNOUTED DYROSAURID (CROCODYLIFORMES, MESOEUCROCODYLIA) FROM THE PALAEOCENE OF MOROCCO
TLDR
A new genus and species of dyrosaurid, Chenanisuchus lateroculi gen. et sp.
Pseudotoothed Birds (Aves, Odontopterygiformes) from the Early Tertiary of Morocco
TLDR
This work provides evidence that Dasornis was widespread in the early Tertiary, as it is currently known from the Lower Paleogene deposits of Morocco, England, and Kazakhstan, and Paleoenvironmental studies show that these marine deposits formed in a tropical climate.
A new dyrosaurid crocodyliform from the Palaeocene of Morocco and a phylogenetic analysis of Dyrosauridae
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the dyrosaurids suggests a North African range for basal mem− bers, and the wide distribution of Rhabdognathus and Hyposaurus confirms the possibility of transoceanic dispersal of these taxa.
A LONG‐SNOUTED DYROSAURID (CROCODYLIFORMES, MESOEUCROCODYLIA) FROM THE PALEOCENE OF MOROCCO: PHYLOGENETIC AND PALAEOBIOGEOGRAPHIC IMPLICATIONS
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the dyrosaurids indicates a close relationship between A. coupatezi and Rhabdognathus and confirms a previous hypothesis that Congosaurus is distinct from Hyposaurus.
Further evidence of the African antiquity of hyaenodontid (‘Creodonta’, Mammalia) evolution
TLDR
The discovery of Lahimia provides direct evidence for the antiquity of the African evolution of the Hyaenodontidae and the Koholiinae, which is representative of an old African endemic lineage, as initially recognized, is characterized by synapomorphies of LahIMia and Boualitomus, and also by a shared original prevallum/postvallid shearing.
