M. R. Furtado, C. R. Candeiro &, L. P. Bergqvist (2013)
Teeth of Abelisauridae and Carcharodontosauridae cf. (Theropoda,
Dinosauria) from the Campanian-Maastrichtian Presidente Prudente
Formation (Southwestern São Paulo State, Brazil).
Estudios Geológicos 69(1): 105-114

Isolated theropod teeth referable to Abelisauridae indet., and
Carcharodontosauridae cf., from the
Campanian-Maastrichtian Presidente Prudente Formation of the western
São Paulo State, Brazil, are described. They are compared to the Late
Cretaceous Gondwanan theropod dinosaur teeth and their affinities are
discussed. These teeth are significant because carnivorous dinosaur
remains are poorly known from the Late Cretaceous beds of Western São
Paulo State except for a few isolated elements.
