Coringasuchus is a genus of mesoeucrocodylian crocodyliform, perhaps a notosuchian. It is known from fossils including cranial material discovered in rocks of the early Cenomanian-age Upper Cretaceous Alcântara Formation, Cajual Island, northeastern Brazil. Coringasuchus was described by A.W.A. Kellner and colleagues in 2009. The type species is C. anisodontis.[1]
