The Lower Cretaceous is a geological range of great importance in reconstructing the radiation of advanced neosuchians and the origin of Eusuchia (Buscalioni et al., 2003; Salisbury et al., 2006; Martin and Delfino, 2010).

The preliminar study of Lo Hueco taxa indicates that they are related to forms close to Allodaposuchus and phylogenetically situated at the base of Eusuchia. This supports the hypothesis of the existence of a group of basal non-crocodylian eusuchians formed exclusively by European taxa, and shows a complex distribution of these forms in the Upper Cretaceous European Archipelago (Narvaez et al., 2013).
