ABSTRACT A lower jaw and associated postcranial remains from the Late Cretaceous—early Paleocene Hornerstown Formation of New Jersey form the basis of a new crocodyliform species, Borealosuchus threeensis. Although one of the oldest known species of Borealosuchus, phylogenetic analysis supports a closer relationship to Borealosuchus from the early Eocene than with other Late Cretaceous or early Paleocene forms. This is based on the shared presence of a short mandibular symphysis excluding the… Expand
New Crocodyliforms from Southwestern Europe and Definition of a Diverse Clade of European Late Cretaceous Basal Eusuchians
The late Campanian-early Maastrichtian site of Lo Hueco (Cuenca, Spain) has provided a set of well-preserved crocodyliform skull and lower jaw remains, which are described here and assigned to a newExpand
A new crocodylian (Eusuchia) from the uppermost Cretaceous of Alberta, Canada1

New specimens of Allodaposuchus precedens from France: intraspecific variability and the diversity of European Late Cretaceous eusuchians
TLDR
The results allow the diversity of Late Cretaceous eusuchians from Europe to be refined and recognize a basal stock known as the Hylaeochampsidae sharing an absence of external mandibular fenestrae. Expand
A revised Eurogondwana model: Late Cretaceous notosuchian crocodyliforms and other vertebrate taxa suggest the retention of episodic faunal links between Europe and Gondwana during most of the Cretaceous
Abstract We describe new remains of the enigmatic Late Cretaceous crocodyliform Doratodon carcharidens coming from the Santonian Csehbanya Formation of Hungary. The material includes isolated upperExpand

ABSTRACT Eusuchians with deep snouts and labiolingually compressed teeth are known from the Palaeogene of Laurasia. These are usually referred to Pristichampsinae, but the type species,Expand
A New Specimen of the Alligatoroid Bottosaurus harlani and the Early History of Character Evolution in Alligatorids
ABSTRACT Cranial and postcranial elements attributed to the alligatoroid Bottosaurus harlani Meyer, 1832, are described from the Rowan Fossil Quarry, a Cretaceous–Paleogene locality in MantuaExpand
Late Palaeocene eusuchian remains from Mont de Berru, France, and the origin of the alligatoroid Diplocynodon
TLDR
The appearance of Diplocynodon in Europe prior to the Palaeocene/Eocene boundary indicates that it did not disperse with North American taxa that reached Europe around the time of thePalaeocene-Eocene thermal maximum (PETM), and a pre-PETM dispersal from North America at the same times as other vertebrates with clear North American affinities also occurring in the Palaiocene of Europe cannot be excluded. Expand
Evolutionary relationships and systematics of Atoposauridae (Crocodylomorpha: Neosuchia): implications for the rise of Eusuchia
TLDR
The phylogenetic placement of Theriosuchus has several implications for the understanding of eusuchian evolution, including that this taxon possessed only amphicoelous presacral vertebrae, and therefore fully developed vertebral procoely is likely to have evolved only once in Crocodylomorpha, on the lineage leading to Eusuchia.

New remains of Diplocynodon (Crocodylia: Diplocynodontidae) from the Early Miocene of the Iberian Peninsula
Abstract We describe crocodylian remains from the Early Miocene (MN4) site of Els Casots (Subirats, Valles-Penedes Basin, NE of the Iberian Peninsula). Referral to Diplocynodon (Alligatoroidea:Expand

TLDR
A review of all the available evidence on the diversity of advanced neosuchians suggests this group achieved a worldwide distribution and a remarkable morphological diversity, pushing their evolutionary origins back to the Jurassic. Expand

Morphology, relationships, and biogeographical significance of an extinct horned crocodile (Crocodylia, Crocodylidae) from the Quaternary of Madagascar
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that Crocodylus robustus Grandidier & Vaillant, 1872 is more closely related to the living African dwarf crocodiles (Osteolaemus) than to living Croc Codylus, consistent with molecular data that suggest comparatively recent dispersal of CroCodylus niloticus to Madagascar from mainland Africa.

A REVISION OF THE CROCODYLIFORMALLODAPOSUCHUS PRECEDENS FROM THE UPPER CRETACEOUS OF THE HATEG BASIN, ROMANIA. ITS RELEVANCE IN THE PHYLOGENY OF EUSUCHIA
TLDR
Allodaposuchus is an outstanding crocodyliform providing new anatomical evidence concerning the stem-group of Crocodylia, and filling the gap between the Early Cretaceous (Barremian) Hylaeochampsa and the earliest common ancestor of CroCodylia. Expand
OSTEOLOGY AND PHYLOGENETIC SIGNIFICANCE OF EOSUCHUS MINOR (MARSH, 1870) NEW COMBINATION, A LONGIROSTRINE CROCODYLIAN FROM THE LATE PALEOCENE OF NORTH AMERICA
TLDR
Eosuchus minor is a slender-snouted form and can be distinguished from most other crocodylians on the basis of an enlarged quadrate foramen aereum; a distinct W-shaped rugosity along the ventral margin of the basioccipital tuber; and arrangement of dentary alveoli into couplets. Expand

TLDR
A new cladistic phylogenetic analysis resolves the previously reported polytomy among the basal Globidonta: Acynodon is recognized as the most primitive globidontan. Expand

The origin of modern crocodyliforms: new evidence from the Cretaceous of Australia
TLDR
The anatomical changes associated with the emergence of this taxon indicate a pivotal shift in the feeding and locomotor behaviour of crocodyliforms—a shift that may be linked to the subsequent rapid diversification of Eusuchia 20 Myr later during the Late Cretaceous and Early Tertiary. Expand
