>3. *Pristichampsus* (panzercroc)

I'd start with Langston's 1975 paper in Fieldiana:Geology and go with the
references therein.  Jin-Ling Li's papers on Planocrania are also worth
looking at - it's probably a pristichampsine.

For that matter, Quinkana is worth a closer look, though it's almost
certainly a derived mekosuckine crocodyloid and not a pristichampsine.

This is not an exhaustive list of references, but should get y'all started:

new combination, from the Eocene of North America.  Fieldiana: Geology,

ziphodont crocodile from the early Pliocene Bluff Downs Local Fauna,

of the Linnean Society of New South Wales, 116:143-151.
