Allodaposuchus

Allodaposuchus is an extinct genus of eusuchian crocodylomorph and an early relative of crocodilians. It lived on land during the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian-Maastrichtian) in Southern Europe (Spain, Romania, and France).

Fragmentary remains of Allodaposuchus precedens were found at Valioara, in the Hateg Basin in Romania.These fragments were originally identified as Crocodilus affuvelensis Matheron, 1869, whose nests have been found in France. Both species were considered as synonymous; nevertheless, C. affuvelensis has been recently recognized as belonging to the genus Massaliasuchus More recently (2006), a complete skull of A. precedens has been discovered in the Maastrichtian locality of Oarda de Jos in the southwestern Transylvanian Basin of Romania and shed new lights on the phylogeny of the genus. It probably grew to about 3 metres (10 feet) long in length. Allodaposuchus_BW.jpg
