Re: Paralititan (mangrove swamps)

Dear listmembers,
        several messages talk about mangrove habitats for Paralititan and other
North African theropods: are they meaning "mangrove-like"? 
May have been some Mesozoic conyphers adapted to brackish environments
like, just to say one,  Brachyphyllum?
I have been said that true mangroves appeared later. Apologies if it has
been explained in some message I have incidentally lost.
