Good to see such interest in a croc, but on the dinosaur discussion group?
Deinosuchus is known from the Judith River Beds of Montana and the Campian
Terlingua Local Fauna, Aguja Formation, Trans-Pecos Texas. There was some
talk of it also being somewhere in South America but this is almost
certainly a misidentification. I have no record of it from Hell Creek, but
that doesn't mean much.
Crocodylidae is not in the Eosuchia, as Phillip Bigelow states, but the
Eusuchia, a suborder of the Crocodylia. I am not sure that the possibly
synonomy between Phobosuchus and Deinosuchus has been properly resolved
Yes Purussaurus is Cainozoic (Miocene), Mesozoic Matt must have been
Hope this is of some help.
