>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:
Langston, W. 1975. Ziphodont crocodiles: Pristichampsus vorax (Troxell),
new combination, from the Eocene of North America. Fieldiana: Geology,

ziphodont crocodile from the early Pliocene Bluff Downs Local Fauna,
