ABSTRACT Revision of the two extinct Javanese crocodylian species Gavialis bengawanicus Dubois, 1908, and Crocodylus ossifragus Dubois, 1908, indicates that only the former is valid and that the latter is a junior subjective synonym of the extant C. siamensis Schneider, 1801. Gavialis bengawanicus is diagnosed by a relatively small number of maxillary and dentary teeth, a modest maxillary process developed into the lacrimal, a W-shaped maxillo-palatine suture, a planar skull table, occlusal… Expand
A giant crocodile in the Dubois Collection from the Pleistocene of Kali Gedeh (Java).
TLDR
A still unpublished crocodylian specimen collected by Eugene Dubois in the latest Early Pleistocene of Kali Gedeh that can be tentatively referred to the genus Crocodylus is reported, indicating that this crocodile attained a total length of approximately 7 m. Expand
A Giant Crocodile from the Plio-Pleistocene of Kenya, the Phylogenetic Relationships of Neogene African Crocodylines, and the Antiquity of Crocodylus in Africa
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis, including the new species and an improved sample of extinct crocodyline diversity, suggests a more complex phylogenetic and biogeographic history for the clade in Africa and the eastern Indian Ocean region than previously supposed. Expand
Taxonomic Overview of Neogene Crocodylians in Myanmar
ABSTRACT Although Neogene crocodylians were well documented from Indo-Pakistan, few fossils were known from Southeast Asia, precluding the understanding of their evolutionary and biogeographicExpand
An Eocene tomistomine from peninsular Thailand
Abstract Skull and mandibular elements of a tomistomine crocodilian are described from the late Eocene to early Oligocene lignite seams of Krabi, peninsular Thailand. The Thai tomistomine is aExpand
NEW CROCODYLIAN REMAINS FROM THE SOLIMÕES FORMATION (LOWER EOCENE–PLIOCENE), STATE OF ACRE, SOUTHWESTERN BRAZILIAN AMAZONIA
The Solimoes Formation (lower Eocene–Pliocene), southwestern Brazilian Amazonia, is one of the most abundant deposits of reptiles from the Cenozoic of Brazil. Eight species of Crocodylia have beenExpand
A juvenile subfossil crocodylian from Anjohibe Cave, Northwestern Madagascar
TLDR
This specimen clearly represents a juvenile based on the extremely small size and open sutures/detached neural arches; total body length is estimated to be ∼1.1 m (modern adults of this species range from ∼4–6 m). Expand
Gavialis from the Pleistocene of Thailand and Its Relevance for Drainage Connections from India to Java
TLDR
New material consisting of skull and mandibular remains of Gavialis from the Early Pleistocene of Khok Sung, Nakhon Ratchasima Province, northeastern Thailand is reported, bridging a geographical gap between these two provinces. Expand
The Middle Pleistocene vertebrate fauna from Khok Sung (Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand): biochronological and paleobiogeographical implications
TLDR
The Khok Sung large mammal assemblage mostly comprises mainland Southeast Asian taxa that migrated to Java during the latest Middle Pleistocene, supporting the hypothesis that Thailand was a biogeographic pathway for the Sino-Malayan migration event from South China to Java. Expand
Freshwater crocodile, Crocodylus siamensis Schneider, 1801, from the Middle Pleistocene deposits in Chaloem Phrakiat District, Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand
TLDR
The cranium morphology is extremely close to Crocodylus siamensis Schneider, 1801 (Siamese crocodile) and conforming the existence of C. siamensis from the Middle Pleistocene in Thailand. Expand
A new crocodylid from the middle Miocene of Kenya and the timing of crocodylian faunal change in the late Cenozoic of Africa
Abstract. Brochuchus is a small crocodylid originally based on specimens from the early Miocene of Rusinga Island, Lake Victoria, Kenya. Here, we report occurrences of Brochuchus from several earlyExpand

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 SKULL WITH JAWS OF CROCODILUS SIVALENSIS LYDEKKER
In the series of fossil vertebrates collected by Mr. Barnum Brown in India is a well-preserved skull of a short-snouted crocodile, with jaws, from the Upper Siwalik Beds, fifteen miles east ofExpand
Phylogenetic Relationships and Divergence Timing of Crocodylus Based on Morphology and the Fossil Record
TLDR
Maximum parsimony analysis of 164 morphological characters supports the monophyly of crown-genus Crocodylus relative to other extant lineages, and monophyletic New World and Indopacific assemblages are supported. Expand
Morphology, fossils, divergence timing, and the phylogenetic relationships of Gavialis.

TLDR
Fossils strongly contradict a post-Oligocene divergence between Gavialis and any other living crocodylian, but the phylogenetic placement of GAVialis is best viewed as unresolved. 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
A gharial from the Oligocene of Puerto Rico: transoceanic dispersal in the history of a non-marine reptile
TLDR
A new Oligocene gharial, Aktiogavialis puertoricensis, is described from deltaic–coastal deposits of northern Puerto Rico and is related to a clade of Neogene gharials otherwise restricted to South America. Expand
Identification of purebred Crocodylus siamensis for reintroduction in Vietnam.
TLDR
The combined use of microsatellite and mtDNA genetic markers were used to determine the species status of potential founder individuals for reintroduction of C. siamensis and four hybrids were identified, two of which had not been recognised morphologically as hybrids, and one of these was thought to be a C. Siamensis suitable for reintroductions. Expand
Phylogenetics, Taxonomy, and Historical Biogeography of Alligatoroidea
TLDR
Parsimony analysis of 164 discrete morphological characters supports several previous hypotheses based on morphology and molecules that Alligatoroidea is a monophyletic alligatoroid lineage and the paraphyly of “Allognathosuchus” is indicated. Expand
