Some of the teeth are flattened and serrated, and may be referred to Pristichampsus (see above), but two of them are dorsoventrally flattened and globular, closely resembling the enlarged teeth found in the back of the dentary and maxillary toothrows of several extinct alligatorids, such as Allognathosuchus, Procaimanoidea, Hassiacosuchus, Ceratosuchus and some extinct Alligator.
However, phylogenetic analysis of fossil alligatorids (Brochu 1999) suggests the nonmonophyly of Allognathosuchus as currently used in the literature.
